Temporary Lane Closures on
4th Street/Blair Road /Cedar Street
Begin September 26

(Washington, DC) – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will temporarily close lanes on the following roadways:

Beginning Thursday, September 26 through Friday, October 4, 2019, weather permitting; DDOT will temporarily close lanes on the following roadways:

  • The northbound travel lane on 4th Street NW between Butternut Street and Cedar Street. Lane closures will take place between 9:30 AM and 3:30 PM on weekdays and between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM on Saturday. WMATA buses normally traveling on the northbound lane will be rerouted. No work will be performed on Sunday.
  • The southbound lane of Blair Road NW between 4th Street NW and Butternut Street will also be closed during this same period. No sidewalk closures will be required during this work.
  • Demolition of the Cedar Street median west of Blair Road will require DDOT to implement intermittent lane closures on Cedar Street to allow for safe channelizing of traffic. As part of this work, crosswalks will be closed, and pedestrians will be directed to crosswalks on the other side of the affected roadway.

Roadway users should expect short interruptions to two-way traffic to allow for the installation of new electrical manholes and the placement of concrete and asphalt to fill electrical conduit trenches between the manholes.

Directional signs will direct travelers safely through the work zone. All users of the roadway are advised to stay alert while traveling through the corridor and to be observant of the work zone.

This work is part of the ongoing Blair Road/Cedar Street/4th Street Intersection Improvement Project. Once complete, the project will increase safety for all users of the roadway traveling through the corridor. For more information about the project, please click here.


The mission of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is to enhance the quality of life for District residents and visitors by ensuring that people, goods, and information move efficiently and safely with minimal adverse impact on residents and the environment.
