Overnight Work Scheduled to Begin This Week
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to repave Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, between 3rd and 14th Streets, beginning tonight, weather permitting.
(Washington, DC) – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to repave Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, between 3rd and 14th Streets, beginning tonight, weather permitting. Crews will mill and pave 2 lanes at a time, starting with the right lanes of eastbound Pennsylvania Avenue.
The work will be conducted overnight, between 8 pm and 5 am, Monday through Saturday, and is anticipated to take approximately 10 days to complete. At least one lane in each direction will be open for traffic at all times, but motorists are advised that delays are possible.
The project will also impact the bicycle lanes down the middle of Pennsylvania Avenue. The bike lanes will be unavailable when the center of the roadway is repaved and bicyclists will need to share the travel lanes with motor vehicles. Drivers are urged to use caution and watch for additional cyclists in traffic.
The bicycle lanes will be re-striped once the roadway is repaved. However, please note that the plastic bollards at intersections along the bike lanes will not be reinstalled until after the Presidential Inauguration in January.
