Repairs on a large sinkhole at 14th and F Streets NW continue this morning, and D.C. officials are warning that a stretch of the busy corridor between Pennsylvania and New York Avenues could remain closed for the coming days. Additionally, F Street between 13th and 15th Street is closed.
The D.C. Department of Transportation and D.C. Water closed off the intersection at 14th and F yesterday, though the sinkhole had been reported using the SeeClickFix app some 11 days ago. According to workers and eye witnesses, the hole is between 15 and 20 feet deep.
City officials warn motorists coming north on 14th Street to turn on Constitution Avenue to avoid traffic backups approaching Pennsylvania Avenue. According to 2010 traffic volume study, between 35,000 and 39,000 cars travel along the affected stretch of 14th Street each day.
Whether the decor is faux '50s silver and neon or authentic greasy spoon, diners are classic Americana, down to the familiar menu items. Rich, poor, black, white--all rub shoulders in the vinyl booths and at formica counters. We explore the enduring appeal and nostalgia of the diner.
