Fun Times Ahead on North Lawn: Excruciating Noise

This just in from Bloomberg’s Ed Chen, president of the White House Correspondent’s Assoc. In short, major, ugly, noisy construction on a portion of the White House’s North Lawn. Do we even know what a back hoe is? The hellishness begins May 22.

All:
Look for an announcement today or tomorrow about a Friday briefing by the GSA that you and especially your tech folks will want to attend.

It’s about a huge construction project involving the portion of the North Lawn closest to us; the work is primarily to update the WH’s utility infrastructure that has been in place since the 1930s.

The GSA briefing is expected to be somewhere within the Executive Mansion complex. Details to come.

In short, it’s going to be ugly and noisy, involving chain-linked and wooden fences, cranes, back hoes, etc. The most impacted will be TV folks (but also those senior WH aides who now park on W. Exec. Drive).

If all goes well, the project will end in December 2012 and nothing will look different.

Thanks,
Ed Chen
