Click on the link to read the entire DCist post on the re-opening of O Street NW:
Update: The headline incorrectly stated that this is the first ‘green street.’ In fact, DDOT has built green street projects on Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue NE, Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Georgia Avenue NW, and in the DOEE RiverSmart Washington projects in Petworth and Chevy Chase, according to Department of Energy and Environment spokesperson Julia Robey Christian.
After nearly 40 years, O Street between 1st and 3rd Streets NW reopened today, and it’s fresher than ever.
Dubbed a “Green Street,” Mayor Muriel Bowser, Department of Energy and Environment director Tommy Wells, and other officials were on hand to inaugurate the section of the road, which has technology to capture thousands of gallons of untreated stormwater.
