DC Flooding Tunnel Project Complete

(Washington, DC) — A tunnel project designed to reduce flooding on Rhode Island Avenue and Mt. Olivet Road has been completed. DC Water announced Friday the Northeast Boundary Tunnel is finished and should alleviate the recurring flooding on those roads. New storm drain inlets should also improve the flow of water into the tunnel. Officials say not all flooding like in the case of an intense storm will be prevented but the impact will not be as great. Recent flooding in August caused District Dogs doggy daycare to flood. Ten dogs died.
