As part of the installation of new dynamic message signs, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will perform 20-minute closures of I-695 (Southeast/Southwest Freeway), between 6th Street and 11th Street, SE, from Friday, July 11, 2014 to Saturday, July 12, 2014, from 10 pm to 5 am. Motorists will also encounter left-lane closures on westbound I-695 and a right-lane closure on eastbound I-695 during these time periods. These closures are needed to allow crews to erect a new overhead sign structure over I-695.
Temporary signs will be in place to alert and guide the traveling public in this area. DDOT encourages all motorists to stay alert as they travel in this corridor. All construction-related work and dates are subject to change, depending on weather, material and contractor availability or other unforeseen conditions.
