Washington, DC - As part of the installation of new dynamic message signs, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will perform 20-minute closures of the eastbound lanes of I-695, between 7th Street SW and South Capitol Street, from Thursday, May 29 to Friday, May 30, 2014, between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Motorists will also encounter a left-lane closure in the westbound direction of the roadway during this time. 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.
