(Washington, DC) – On Friday, November 2, at 12 pm, Mayor Bowser will kick off AlleyPalooza 8.0, her biannual campaign to repair or restore eight alleys in each of the eight wards over twelve weeks. Since the initiative was launched in 2015, Mayor Bowser’s Department of Transportation has repaired nearly 500 alleys across all eight wards.
To target alleys most in need of repair, DDOT implemented a data-driven approach to select alleys by creating an assessment tool like the system used for road repairs. The factors used by the assessment tool include the condition of the alleys; number of service requests received through 311; age of the service requests; and community feedback.
