These closures are required for construction activities associated with the Interstate 395 (I-395) Sign Structure Project. Through the project, DDOT will replace and repair existing sign structures along the I-395 corridor. This includes the corridor-wide furnishing and installation of overhead traffic guide signs (sign mounting structures and panels), electrical systems, and lighting fixtures. The work will also remove existing overhead signs, sign structures, and electrical systems. Once complete, the project will provide corridor wide improvements to the guide signing and lighting between the 12th Street Expressway and D Street SW.
