Speed and potholes cause issues along Park Road
WASHINGTON (ABC7) —
Some people who live along Park Road in Northwest Washington said their block was more like an expressway than a residential street.
They said the stretch approaching Rock Creek Park was riddled with pot holes. They also said since there was a mile-and-a-half between crosswalks or stop signs, drivers tended to speed. Some veered into the oncoming lane to avoid the pot holes and the residents feared a major accident was inevitable.
Residents asked for speed humps, bumps, or speed cameras. It's a 25-mile-an-hour zone.
But they maintain the city had done little to nothing.
A spokesperson for D.C. Department of Transportation said the Department was waiting for the Advisory Neighborhood Commission to agree on possible solutions. She said then D-Dot would discuss a path forward with the recommended solutions.
