DDOT to Temporarily Close Lanes on Georgia Avenue Between Barry Place and Florida Avenue, NW, Beginning July 28

(Washington, DC) — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will close one lane of traffic in each direction on Georgia Avenue, NW, between Barry Place and Florida Avenue, NW in Ward 1 beginning on Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at 7 am, weather permitting. These closures are expected to stay in place until May 2016.
The closures are needed for DDOT to construct dedicated bus lanes and a streetscape along Georgia Avenue, NW. The work includes the replacement of sidewalks, curb and gutters, sidewalk ramps, mill and overlay of the roadway, and new dedicated bus lanes in each direction on Georgia Avenue, NW.
Curbside parking will be restricted while work is underway and ultimately removed upon completion of the project. Emergency No Parking signs are and will be posted a minimum of 72 hours before the start of construction. Sidewalk detours will also be in place while sidewalk repair is in progress. Signage and protective barriers will be used to maintain public safety.
Motorists should expect moderate-to-heavy delays, and are advised to seek alternative routes. DDOT encourages all traveling in this area to stay alert and to obey all construction signs.Explore posts in the same categories: Bus service, DDOT comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
