Alleypalooza 6 gives a facelift to Petworth’s worst alleys

At long last, some of Petworth’s filthiest and broken up alleys are getting a facelift, thanks to Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Alleypalooza.

All I can think about is Tonka

I was watching DPW working in the alley this morning, clearing out the old concrete (they're all about Alleypalooza and what not).

First they used a massive jackhammer to drill holes into the concrete, then they brought in the excavator to dig up said concrete, carting it away in a large dump truck. 

All the things I loved when I was a kid. You know, big trucks making a lot of loud rumbling noise, shaking the house and breaking things apart? Yes!

The finished product.
