The project scope includes the design and construction of a new dog park in DPR’s inventory. This will be the first dog park located in Ward 7. The new dog park will be located northwest of the intersection of Texas Avenue and C Street, SE.
The Department of General Services (DGS) wants to inform the community of a recent development that will impact the Texas Avenue Dog Park. We have made the decision to terminate contracts with Broughton Construction Company after careful consideration and assessment of their performance. We understand that this will cause the Texas Avenue Dog Park project to be delayed; however, our priority remains delivering the highest quality facilities which serve the public’s needs across the District—in this case, the Department of Parks and Recreation’s first dog park East of the River. We have worked diligently to assess the situation, explore alternative solutions, and minimize disruptions caused by this change as we move toward a Winter 2023 / 2024 start date. At this time, the construction permits have not expired and DGS has engaged a new contractor for the start and completion the construction of the Texas Avenue Dog Park. DGS is committed to keeping the community informed about the progress of this project, as well as the steps we are taking to minimize delays and deliver this dog park as swiftly as possible.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue to navigate this situation. Thank you for your support and cooperation. Please contact Wayne Gore, [email protected], with any questions, or visit https://dgs.dc.gov/page/texas-avenue-dog-park1-0 for further updates.
