Roadway Resurfacing Feedback
I hope you are doing well. As a community representative, I am writing to let you know that the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) had another record roadway resurfacing season. This calendar year, so far, we have paved over 125 miles of roadway across all eight wards of the District. Thank you for working with DDOT in support of core infrastructure improvements and providing awareness to the community about our work.
As we near the end of this year’s paving season, we are already thinking about next year! DDOT is in the early stages of planning for the 2021 paving season and we want your feedback on our roadway resurfacing efforts. Every year we determine which roads to pave based on a number of factors including budget, engineering assessments, and 311 Service Requests. In addition, we consider community feedback to ensure we didn’t miss anything and to assist us in prioritizing. Please take a few minutes to share your feedback here. I’m also happy to have a quick chat at your convenience.
Mayor Bowser is committed to eliminating all roadways, alleys, and sidewalks in poor condition in Washington, DC by 2024 through the PaveDC initiative. Each year, beginning in the spring and continuing through the fall, DDOT performs annual routine street maintenance to keep the District’s roadways as close as possible to a newly constructed condition. If you’d like to see our progress, check out our annual paving plan using the interactive tool, PaveDC at ddot.dc.gov/pavedc. We look forward to enhancing the tool in 2021 to make it even more informative. In addition to your feedback, please always encourage your neighbors and friends to submit service requests via 311 for locations that require our attention.
I look forward to working with you on this initiative. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.
