The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to conduct repairs and bridge preservation activities on the Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge over Rock Creek Parkway, beginning January 3, weather permitting. The work will be conducted from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm daily and the project is expected to be completed on or before February 15, 2013.
The work will require closing one lane of westbound traffic over the bridge during off-peak hours.
The lane closures are temporary and will not be installed until the completion of the morning rush hour and will be removed before the start of the evening rush hour.
Variable Messages boards will be in place to alert the traveling public to these closures. Motorists in this corridor can expect some delays but DDOT does not anticipate the lane closures will significantly impact the flow of traffic.
