The City Fix DC, a blog about sustainable transport in the DC area, posted a story today lauding SeeClickFix’s role in getting a pedestrian-unfriendly intersection repaired. Blogger Erica Schlaikjer cited the fix as another example of how SCF puts a “more responsive government… at your fingertips.”
SCF users described the intersection of U Street and Florida Avenue in the Adams Morgan neighborhood as “a serious safety hazard” and a “tragedy waiting to happen.” Representatives from the local city councilman’s office immediately responded, with information on a streetscape reconstruction project that was set to target this intersection.
Through continued dialogue, citizens were able to convince the DC Department of Transportation that this intersection deserved interim action. And just last week, the DDOT used SCF to publish a list of completed fixes, including new signs, road lines, and signal timings.
City Fix DC points out that that more repairs are still needed and will be handled by the long-term plan. However, the DDOT’s quick response to the unexpected problem shows the power of the SCF community to prompt action to issues that need to be addressed more rapidly than the timeframes set by long-term planning goals.
