In emergency situations, access may be permitted by notifying DDOT. Work is estimated to take about two weeks, weather permitting.

  • Square 0810 bound by G Street NE, 4th Street NE, F Street NE and 5th Street NE.

Pavement Markings

Pavement markings indicate which part of the road to use, provide information about conditions ahead, and, overall, are a vital part of communicating the traffic movement. DDOT’s striping season has now officially ended due to a drop in the temperature. Optimal striping weather is warm and sunny (45 degrees and above with low humidity). Cooler temperatures prevent successful paint application. During colder weather, DDOT installs temporary roadway marking tape, as needed. The 2018 striping season will begin March 2018, weather permitting.
