DeEvening Links: Columbus Plaza, rebuilt at last

The walk out of Union Station is about to become more pleasant. (Jeffrey Porter - For The Washington Post)
It was only three years ago that this reporter took to the Interwebs to decry the state of Columbus Plaza, that expanse of weeds and leaky fountains and buckled, tracherous pavement in front of Union Station. At the time, a well-meaning city spokeswoman told me a rebuild would begin in a matter of months. Well, Hallelujah: The rebuild finally starts Monday, Dr. Gridlock reports. Here’s to progress.
