    Some shots from today. Work was occurring, apparently to lower the utility boxes to grade. As can be seen, the turn for the current detour continues to challenge the construction team (and their...

    Work is progressing on the cycle track on 4th Street NW & SW across the Mall.

    The District seems to be continually beefing up the barriers between the track and the traffic.
