30 Jul Traffic Advisory
Weekend, Nighttime Lane Closures on Massachusetts Avenue Continue to Occur Between Second and Fourth Streets NW in August
Motorists should expect detours and delays
(Washington DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Property Group Partners today remind the public that utility relocation work continues for the 3rd Street Tunnel Infrastructure Project along Massachusetts Avenue and H Street between Second and Fourth streets, NW, in Wards 2 and 6. The schedule of full and partial lane closures outlined here will be in effect through the end of July and into August 2015.
On Saturdays and Sundays, beginning August 1 and 2, from 8 am to 6 pm, Massachusetts Avenue will be fully closed to traffic between Second and Fourth streets, NW, as installation of a high-voltage electric line in the roadway continues. Motorists in the area should follow the marked detours.
This phase of work will also require occasional weekday single- and double-lane closures from 7 am until 7 pm. At least one lane will remain open in each direction.
The public is also reminded that full road closures will be in place on Mondays and Tuesdays from 7 pm until midnight. During these closures, Massachusetts Avenue will be closed between Second and Fourth streets, NW; and H Street will be closed between Massachusetts and Fourth. Detour signs will direct motorists around the work zones.
Motorists are advised to find alternative routes to bypass the construction areas; or plan for additional travel time as traffic delays are likely to occur.
Drivers, pedestrians and cyclists are urged to stay alert and to use caution when traveling through the work zones.
This notice continues an ongoing public outreach effort that began in 2013 for the Capitol Crossing project.
