We’ve written before about DDOT’s plan to build a streetcar system throughout the District. The city already owns three streetcars and is storing them temporarily in Greenbelt.
The city recently installed rails and mini-platforms (see below) along the western end of Benning Road in Northeast Washington. Here are some photos we took this weekend of our shiny new infrastructure.
Above: Median platform at 19th Street NE.
Below: The tracks are embedded in a linear concrete pad that runs along the inner lanes of Benning Road.
The rails will continue along H Street NE toward Union Station.
