Road begins in the Ward 1 neighborhood of Mount Pleasant, travels under
the Porter Street cloverleaf (recent
renovation costs: $6M) and ends in the Ward 3 neighborhood of Woodley
Park. The Mayor
proposes to permanently close the middle section of this functioning
roadway to the general public, and turn it into a "gated
recreational trail, making more traffic on your road. We
would no longer be allowed to travel the length of Klingle Road, a
public road owned by all DC taxpayers.
Under the Mayor's proposal, our historic public road would have
three sections - a short road in Mt. Pleasant, a gated bike/hike trail
skirting the edge of Cleveland Park, and another short section of road
in Woodley Park.
Road is surrounded by over 2,000 acres of U.S. parkland, with lots of
bike paths and valley hiking trails stretching from Maryland to
Klingle Road is a public road that DC should repair. It
only gets complicated when private citizens are allowed to
manipulate the federal allocation process, and special interests
are permitted to sway transportation policy against the public
contrast, Klingle Road is a unique and irreplaceable transportation
resource. It is the only
road in DC that travels east and west underneath Connecticut Avenue.
Klingle Road is one of only a few cross-park roads. Opening
Klingle Road to traffic will benefit travel on important primary
arteries like Connecticut Avenue and Porter Street.
activists are working hard to keep Klingle Road open. We have the
support of the current and former DC Council members, Advisory
Neighborhood Commissions (ANC), including the ANC Assembly, local
community civic and neighborhood organizations, DC Fire and EMS
officials, businesses, unions, environmentalists, bicyclists, and
thousands of incredibly supportive activists and residents of the
District of Columbia.
