4th Street Demolition Underway

Yesterday, I noticed that some of the trees have been removed in the park behind Waterfront Station, where 4th Street will soon be reconnected. The newly reopened portion of 4th Street between I Street and M Street is scheduled to be complete before the 1st phase of Waterfront Station is opened in the 1st quarter of 2010. I would have taken photos of the demolition, but unfortunately, I lost my digital camera in a DC taxicab earlier this week. Hopefully, a good Samaritan will turn it in to the lost and found at the DC Taxicab Commission!

Update: Below are a couple of photos courtesy of reader DavidSW.

The first photo shows some of the trees that were removed from the park that used to be behind the old Waterside Mall. The trees were cut down on May 13th.

This photo shows what the southbound 4th Street right-of-way now looks like once the trees have been removed from the park.

I just happen to have taken photos of this the very day the trees were taken down! Let me know how to get them to you.

I noticed that I can now see the Waterfront metro station when I'm at 4th & G.
