With the 45-day review period triggered by Councilmember Marion Barry‘s hold on the contract having expired, Gage-Eckington Park at 2nd and V Street NW will get finally underway with a groundbreaking ceremony at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow. It’s one of those D.C.-esque ironies: The interim use at the site of Bruce Monroe, another school that closed in 2008 and lay fallow for years while Gage-Eckington moved forward, was very suddenly completed once $1.5 million came through in this budget cycle. Gage-Eckington will be lucky to finish before it gets too cold to play there.
