|Old, unimproved Second Street NW at Kingwood|
with abandoned RR line down center
|The adopted plan|
|New Second Street with sidewalks, swales, curbs, and stalls|
Those who live or work on it of course will have a better idea, but from here it looks like it will become the "Edgewater by-pass," a cut-through to avoid queuing and other traffic on Edgewater.
And, again, when the Edgewater/Second Street Action Plan calls for more connectivity for people on foot and on bike, this looks pretty autocentric, with much more space allocated to temporary private car storage than for sidewalk life.
