Klingle Road was conveyed to the District in
1885 for the purpose of a public road and has served that purpose
admirably for over a century.
The City legally is obligated to maintain
all public roads. Klingle Road has been neglected for too long.
Klingle Road should be repaired and maintained as part of D.C.'s
existing transportation infrastructure.
