(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announces that on Saturday, October 28th there will be expanded street closures in and around the 3rd Street Tunnel Infrastructure Project to facilitate the transfer of traffic signals from temporary to permanent.

The closures include:

    • Massachusetts Avenue between 2nd and 4th Streets, NW
    • 3rd Street between G and H Streets, NW
    • 4th Street between G and H Streets, NW


The suggested alternate route west will be north on 2nd Street or New Jersey Avenue to K Street, west on K Street. The suggested alternate route east will be south on 4th Street to E Street, east on E Street.


Pedestrian and vehicular access to and from residences within the work zone will be managed via signage, barriers and flagging personnel where necessary.


Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists are urged to stay alert and use caution when traveling through or around the work zone. Please plan for additional travel time on surface streets, as traffic delays are likely to occur, or use alternative routes to bypass the construction area.
