Please Note: Work may be adjusted depending on weather and other conditions. Additional projects may also be added. DDOT contacts residents and businesses within the work area before work commences. Unless otherwise noted, work is not conducted on weekends.

In observance of the Christmas holiday, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will suspend construction activities on District roadways and sidewalks on Monday, December 25.

Lane closures will not be allowed for non-emergency work in roadways and sidewalks within the District's right of way. This includes manhole access and construction-related deliveries. Approved activities can resume Tuesday, December 26, during permitted work hours.

Alley Improvement Projects

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

  • Square 4237 bound by Upshur Street NE, 22nd Street NE, Taylor Street NE and Eastern Avenue NE.

Pavement Marking

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 drop in 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, when and where needed, temporary roadway marking tape. The 2018 striping season will begin in March 2018, weather permitting.
