(Updated at 3:04 p.m.) The D.C. government is targeting the neighborhoods around Howard University in a new battle against unsanctioned posters and illegal tagging.

The D.C. Department of Public Works launched its first-ever “Great Graffiti Wipe Out” yesterday in Shaw outside the Howard Theatre.

Yesterday, crews kicked off the DPW campaign by cleaning graffiti at the following locations:

  • An alley on the 700 block of V Street NW.
  • An alley on the 600 block of T Street NW, between T Street and Florida Avenue NW.
  • 2112 Georgia Ave. NW.
  • 618 T St. NW.

An alley on the 1800 block of Wiltberger Street NW (including the residential home at 1813 Wiltberger St. NW); the commercial block on 7th Street NW between U and T streets NW; the commercial block of 8th and W streets NW; and the Georgia Avenue V Street sides of 2112 Georgia Ave. NW are still slated to be cleaned.
