(Washington, DC) – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will temporarily close travel lanes and restrict parking along 17th Street starting at A Street NE ending at Potomac Avenue SE to resurface the roadway.

Temporary lane closures will take place between 9:30 AM and 3:30 PM. Side streets may be restricted to local access and detours will be used as needed.
