Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B has launched an online survey to collect Glover Parkers’ opinions on the lane patterns created by last year’s Wisconsin Avenue streetscape project. This survey will inform the ANC’s testimony at a December 4 hearing on the matter scheduled by Ward 3 Councilwoman Mary Cheh.

“Voices have been raised, mostly loudly by people who do not live in Glover Park, against the lane changes on Wisconsin Avenue, which were designed to slow traffic through our commercial center and increase pedestrian safety,” the survey’s introduction states. “It is possible this hearing will result in a decision to return Wisconsin Avenue in Glover Park back to the way it was before the streetscape project.” Some of the streetscape changes, including left-turn-only lanes north of Calvert Street, have already been reversed in response to concerns about gridlock.

Glover Park residents can take the ANC’s survey at surveymonkey.com. To ensure that only ANC 3B constituents weigh in, survey participants are required to provide their names and addresses.
