Changing Lanes

Posted November 17, 2003 at 6:39pm

Various construction projects will once again impact traffic patterns on Constitution Avenue Northeast.

Until further notice, traffic on Constitution between First and Second streets will be limited to westbound travel from 5 a.m. each Saturday through 2:30 p.m. Monday. The change, which will accommodate construction of the perimeter security project and utility line relocation, took effect this weekend, according to the Architect of the Capitol’s office.

Eastbound traffic on Constitution Avenue will be detoured via First Street Northeast to East Capitol to Third Street Northeast.

GPO Switcheroo. Capitol Hill veteran Reynold Schweickhardt is taking the reins as the Government Printing Office’s chief information officer.

Schweickhardt, who will also serve on GPO’s Management Council, joined the printing agency earlier this year as information resources management policy manager.

“We like Reynold’s blend of cut- ting-edge private sector experience coupled with his extensive knowledge of the Federal Government’s systems and requirements,” Deputy Public Printer William Turri said in a statement.

Before joining GPO, Schweickhardt was the House Administration Committee’s director of technology. He previously served as the panel’s deputy staff director and staff director of the Joint Printing Committee.

Veronica Meter is also picking up a promotion; she will head the Government Printing Office’s new Office of Public Relations.

GPO created the office when it split its Office of Congressional and Public Affairs into new divisions, including the Office of Congressional Relations led by Andrew Sherman.

Meter joined the Government Printing Office in May as an expert consultant in video production, after spending three years as executive producer for Las Vegas’ ONE-TV, a 24-hour cable news station.
