Table of Contents

This publication lists the alley, sidewalk, and road paving projects the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) currently plans to tackle in the next two weeks. See the paving plan locations by ward on this map.

Please Note: Work may be adjusted depending on weather and other conditions. During extreme cold and winter weather, construction activities will likely be canceled or delayed. Additional projects may be added to this list. DDOT contacts residents and businesses within the work zones before work begins. Unless otherwise noted, work is not conducted on weekends.

Due to the upcoming special event, March for Our Lives, all construction activities in the public right of way are suspended on roadways and sidewalks within the DC Central Business District, today, Friday, March 23, 2018, and citywide, tomorrow, Saturday, March 24, 2018. This suspension is for the entire day. This is an effort to eliminate impacts to pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the affected areas. Lane closures will not be allowed for non-emergency work in roadways and sidewalks. This includes manhole access and construction-related deliveries. Permitted activities can begin Monday, March 26.

Pavement Markings

markingsStriping season begins this month, weather permitting. 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. 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.


If you live in, or near any of the project areas, please remove your vehicles by the posted times, and encourage your neighbors to do the same.
