DDOT's Weekly Construction Update: Work Between Sunday, February 18 and Sunday, March 4

Friday, February 16, 2018
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.

On Monday, February 19, in observance of Presidents Day, construction activities in the District are suspended. Lane closures will not be allowed for non-emergency work on the roadways and sidewalks within the District’s right of way. This includes manhole access and construction-related deliveries. DDOT encourages permit holders to take extra measures to secure their work sites during the moratorium.

Pavement Markings

markingsPavement 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 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 in March, weather permitting.

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.
