Social Distancing Road Closures Proposed in DC

(Washington, DC)  —  Three DC lawmakers want the Department of Transportation to close narrow streets to promote social distancing efforts.  DC Mayor Muriel Bowser received a letter from Charles Allen, Mary Cheh and Brianne Nadeau making the request citing resident complaints that sidewalks are crowded.  Residents can submit a request with their Advisory Neighborhood Council to make changes on their street as long as more that 50-percent of the residents agree.
