DDOT sent the following letter to residents who live in or near the intersection of 37th St. NW and Tunlaw Rd. NW:
The District Department of Transportation will start implementing safety enhancements at the
intersection of 37th Street N.W and Tunlaw Road N. W., on or about May 28, 2013.
Construction is expected to be completed by June 25, 2013, weather permitting. Contractor will
