October 18 Preservation Cafe Highlights Historic Alleys of Capitol Hill
Capitol Hill has a picturesque collection of alleys, many of which are paved with historic materials--red and/or yellow brick, asphalt pavers, tan river-pebble concrete, and river rock with brick carriage tracks.
John Deatrick, DDOT Deputy Director and Chief Engineer, will discuss the resources available from the city's historic alley program and the challenges the department faces in implementing the program at the Capitol Hill Restoration Society's Preservation Cafe on Wednesday, October 18, from 6:30-7:15 p.m. at Christ Church Parish Hall, 620 G Street, S.E.
In his powerpoint presentation, Deatrick will describe the alley asset database, program funding, and how residents can work with DDOT on repaving and reconstruction initiatives. Several Capitol Hill alleys have been restored under the program, including Gessford Court, S.E.
and Brown's Court, S.E.
The meeting is free, open to the public, and no reservations are necessary. Christ Church is wheelchair accessible from the rear parking lot of the building. Details: Nancy Metzger, 546-1034.
