(Washington, DC) - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will install a bike lane and transportation safety improvements around Sherman Circle. The work is scheduled to begin after the morning rush, Monday, May 14, weather permitting. The work is continuous and is expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Two travel lanes will be retained. There will be a reduction of three parking spaces at the circle to bring the bus stop zones up to compliance. The plans will be installed in accordance with what DDOT announced at the April community meeting.

More information can be found on DDOT’s Grant and Sherman Circles webpage, https://ddot.dc.gov/page/grant-and-sherman-circles

Motorists may encounter moderate delays, and all users of the circle are advised to stay alert while traveling through this location and to be observant of DDOT's personnel.
