Temporary Lane Closures on East Capitol Street Begin April 24

(Washington, DC) - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to temporarily close lanes of traffic on East Capitol Street from Southern Avenue to Anacostia Avenue SE on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, weather permitting.

Work will be performed between 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. in the westbound direction and 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the eastbound direction. The contractor is also authorized to work on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. At least one lane will be open to traffic in each direction.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by July 15, 2019, weather permitting. The closures and restrictions are needed for construction work, which includes resurfacing the roadway.

Parking restriction signs will be posted at least 72 hours in advance along the corridor. These signs will notify the duration and dates of “No Parking” and provide contact information of the engineer in charge.

Traffic controls will be in place to warn drivers approaching the areas. Motorists should anticipate moderate delays due to the lane closures. Drivers are advised to stay alert, use caution while traveling through these locations and to be observant of the work zone.


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.
