Councilmember Grosso sent a follow up letter to the District Department of Transportation and the Department of General Services to inquire about the lack of sidewalks in front of the Wilson Building; his initial letter received no response.
Councilmember Grosso believes access to adequate sidewalk space, especially around government buildings that the public should be able to access easily, is a public safety concern. Pedestrians have been observed walking into the street while multiple lanes remain available to cars.
A sidewalk should be established in the roadway immediately to allow for pedestrian safe passage.
