(Washington, DC) – Tomorrow at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser and District Department of Transportation (DDOT) Director Leif Dormsjo will kick off AlleyPalooza, a campaign that will repair or renovate 64 alleys throughout the District - eight in each of the District’s eight wards over the summer. The District’s Alleys are a vital, yet often overlooked piece of the city’s infrastructure.

Alleys for AlleyPalooza were selected based on community feedback, including 311 calls and a review by DDOT engineers. The new program demonstrates the Bowser Administration’s commitment to improving the District’s infrastructure.
