We periodically share updates from your ANC commissioners. Although these are most pertinent to particular single member districts (SMDs), we feel the information shared can be of interest to the whole Capitol Hill community. Are you an ANC commissioner who shares regular updates? Add thehillishome@gmail.com to your distribution list, please! –María Helena Carey

Updates From Kirsten Oldenburg, ANC 6B04


According to my latest update, Pepco estimates that the disruptive work on the 1100 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE will conclude by the end of December (2016).  This current phase (digging trenches for conduits) will be followed by work to install cables through the conduits.  But this latter phase will not involve digging; rather Pepco crews will access the conduits via manholes.  It is too cold now to repave the street so temporary patching will occur; final repaving will happen in Spring 2017.

Fortunately, the temporary patching will remove the steel plates that have caused substantial noise as vehicles pass over them. While still in place, Pepco crews are now supposed to check all plates at the end of each day to make sure they are stable and don’t rock.

Washington Gas is in the process of changing gas meters on Capitol Hill.  ANC 6B and staff from the DC’s Office of People’s Counsel (http://www.opc-dc.gov) have received many complaints from residents about WG contractors poor workmanship, property damage, safety, and lack of notice about when the work would begin.

The Washington Gas work was authorized by the DC Public Service Commission and it’s time to notify them of ongoing practices associated with this project. In order to be most effective and address concerns, OPC is seeking affidavits from consumers explaining how work is affecting them.  If you would like to participate, please stop by the Hill Center, 921 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Tuesday, December 13th between 7pm and 9pm. OPC will have a notary on-hand to accept statements.   Cheryl Morse, at OPC, can answer any questions you might have.  Her email is cmorse@opc-dc.gov
