      Your help is needed.  A major artery that leads Maryland and Virginia residents into the District of Columbia has been compromised.  Tonight, there will be a meeting, held by the DC Dept of Transportation and Councilmember Vincent Gray’s office to discuss this issue.  Residents in the prominent Hillcrest Neighborhood (Ward 7) have managed to have the traffic patterns changed on Branch Avenue .  They have taken away a whole lane of traffic from incoming and outgoing commuters and have had “Do Not Enter” signs posted on every side street from the Maryland DC line to Alabama Avenue .  This has caused major and drastic traffic delays during the morning and evening rush hours. 
      We know you are not expected to care about this inconvenience to residents outside of the District of Columbia , except, we are the doctors, nurses, EMTs, and police officers who service your city from 8 – 12 hours a day.  A few of us are the Federal employees.
      Just visit Branch Avenue, between Pennsylvania Ave, SE and Southern Avenue (Maryland Line) during rush hour and you will see a big traffic disaster.  Notice of the change in the traffic pattern is also inadequate. 
      Please ask Councilmember Vincent Gray and the rest of the city council (emails below) to take up this issue with us in mind.  We are essential employees in this city and contribute significantly to it.  One resident of Hillcrest has asked us to find another way into the city.  This would only make other entrances into the city more congested.   We can only think of one quick solution and that is to have traffic patterns change with the flow of traffic, similar to Connecticut Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue traffic.  Any support you can give us will be extremely helpful. 
      Your support and action of this email is very much needed. 
      Meeting:  District of Columbia , Department of Transportation concerning drastic changes to a main artery into the city from Maryland/Virginia ( Branch Avenue ).
