- The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be re-opening the public parking on the south side of H Street, NE from 3rd to 8th Street.
(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be re-opening the public parking on the south side of H Street, NE from 3rd to 8th Street after the roadway paving and lane striping activities in these blocks are completed on Saturday, March 19, weather permitting.
Efforts are currently underway to complete the removal of the jersey barriers that have been in place on the south side of these H Street blocks during streetcar track installation and other construction activities. The roadway milling work that precedes the asphalt paving is also currently underway.
The milling and paving work is also being done on the portions of 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Street that intersect with the south side of H Street. The work on the side streets covers approximately 75 feet of each side street south of H Street.
To assure that the side-street space is open for the milling and paving work, Emergency No Parking signs have been posted and will remain in place through Saturday, March 19, prohibiting parking in these side-street areas from 7 am to 5 pm. Vehicles parked in the no-parking area during these hours are subject to ticketing and towing.
As the jersey barriers are removed from these blocks of H Street, they will be replaced with orange plastic traffic barrels during the remainder of the milling and paving work. After completion of the milling and paving, the contractor will paint the permanent lane striping on the new asphalt roadway surface.
After the lane striping is complete, the orange traffic barrels and other temporary traffic control devices will be removed, and the south curb lane will be re-opened for parking. Though the lane striping is scheduled for Saturday, any rain delays this week could cause a postponement until early next week.
On the north side of the H Street reconstruction area, paving was completed and parking in the north curb lane was restored from 3rd Street to 13th Street last year.
The work is part of DDOT’s H Street Reconstruction Project. More information about the project is available on the DDOT website, at dashboard.ddot.dc.gov under the Ward 6 Projects Link, or by contacting the project field office at (202) 544-7603.
