Why does Arlington insist on turning Barton street into Hell?

    First the detour with the closing of 10th at 50 turns Barton into a major detour thoroughfare from 10th to Pershing.


    So with Barton ridiculously over-utilized seems like a PERFECT time for re-paving this stretch of road, doesn’t it!?


    I feel terrible for the folks who live on that road.

    Yeah, i  noticed they were scraping the road in preparation of repaving it. I believe they did my portion last year. Now it is time for 9th street to Pershing to have it done.

    I was thinking the same thing OP.  They do have the middle finger house on that street though, and I’m sure it speaks for it’s neighbors right about now.

    That’s just the skinny building. I don’t see a middle finger. That building was in the news when it was first built. THey couldn’t find a buyer so they rented it out to a bunch of chicks. I remember that article in the wapo or wtop or something like that.

    I would not want to live in the house next-door….the MF house is so out of place.

    (and, I can’t pass this up…..chicks?  really?  :-)

    Yeah, a bunch of chicks moved into it. Though I think it might have been sold since.
