Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker joins the broadcast to explore the challenges in his jurisdiction - and those throughout the D.C. region.
A large-scale mixed-used project is being built over six lanes of Interstate 395 in D.C.’s central business district. While the ambitious construction project will take years and bring lane closures on one of the busiest sections of the highway, the project promises three new city blocks to connect D.C.’s Capitol Hill and East End communities. Funded by private investors and the developer, the project has been heralded as a bridge between urban neighborhoods and an ideal staging ground for new retail and office space. Kojo talks with developer Robert Braunohler, longtime urban planner Harriet Tregoning, architect Roger Lewis about the role of bridges in our region and the Capitol Crossing project in particular.
