The road is divorced from the vision of a community along South Capitol Street. It does seem like DDOT planners have once again planned to move traffic but hasn't planned to move all the potential bridge users. Has DDOT consulted with DMPED or the Office of Planning to see what could be built along the corridor? You know, maybe we can set up a TIF (Tax Increment Financing).

What is the purpose of greenspace / circles? It feels like the greenspace in the middle of an interstate highway, its just for show, not for people. Access to the river from the bridge also doesn't seem clear. Lastly, what about the talk last year of infilling sections of the Suitland Parkway to bring it to street level at MLK Avenue, is that included in the cost? Transit? Noting?

It all just seems a little short-sighted.
