In our last update on Capitol Crossing, we received two requests for information, one in the comments of a post and another by e-mail. We are providing the answers back as a public service as the developer responded as follows:
Question: As part of the original PUD for the development, an amount of money was to be provided to improve the park there at on Massachusetts Avenue. This development work was to be dine in conjunction with MVSNA and Casey Trees to improve that triangle park. What was ever done with this?
Answer: Regarding Cobb Park, Balfour Beatty DC will be using the site while the project is under construction. We will then implement a plan developed in association with the neighborhoods to restore Cobb Park.
Question (paraphrased for brevity purposes): Is the contractor adhering to the work hours as stipulated in the work permits?
Answer: The contractor is adhering to prescribed work hours, which include the following:
Massachusetts Avenue, NW and 3rd Street, NW (Early Utility Relocation Work)
- Monday – Friday: 7:00am-5pm
- Monday – Tuesday: 7:00pm-12:00 midnight, as needed
- Saturday – Sunday: 8:00am-6:00pm, as needed
Also, work on the highway/platform, work in/on I-395; the portals, tunnel, bridges, garage/concourse and platform is permitted for 24-Hours operation. The highway work takes place overnight for safety reasons as there is much less traffic.
