Playground Construction to Begin At 11th & Maryland on Monday

The following update was provided by e-mail by Frank Young (690-5183 or, of the National Parks Service, via Shannon Micah Salb, 1300 block of G Street NE, regarding the small park at 11th Street and Maryland Avenue. Mr. Salb first reported about the playground in the May 4 issue of the Corner Forum.

I'm sure you have noticed some recent activity at 11th & MD Avenue. The playground equipment is in with the contractor, scheduled to begin installation this coming Monday, the 8th. However, because of the wet weather, our crews have not been able to finish the grading necessary for them to begin. We expect to be finished [with] the grading next week, weather permitting of course, with the contractor coming in immediately afterwards. §
