Good afternoon Mr. Larson:

I send this note with regard to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that you submitted to the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) on October 2, 2018. As you may know, DDOT is required to respond to your FOIA request within fifteen (15) business days of its receipt. See D.C. Official Code § 2-532(c)(2011). However, under certain circumstances, D.C. Official Code § 2-532(d)(2011) authorizes the District to extend, by ten (10) additional days, the deadline by which it must respond to a FOIA request. One of the circumstances provided by that statute is a case in which the District needs additional time to search for, collect and examine voluminous amounts of records and/or consult with an additional D.C. agency. Pursuant to the above-referenced statute, the District has extended, by ten (10) days, the deadline by which it must respond to your FOIA request.

We anticipate responding to your FOIA request by November 7, 2018. Thank you.
Kind regards,

Charma
