Temporary Lane Closures on I-395 Begin February 18

(Washington, DC)—The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will temporarily close lanes and shoulders on the following roadways to perform construction activities along I-395 for sign structure replacements.

The following lane and shoulder closures will be in place daily from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, Tuesday, February 18 through Friday, February 21, 2020, weather permitting:

I-395/I-695 Southbound/Westbound

  • Single left lane between 12th Street Expressway to 9th Street Expressway

Motorists are urged to use caution as they travel in these areas, to anticipate moderate delays, and to be mindful of construction personnel.

These closures are required for construction activities associated with the Interstate 395 (I-395) Sign Structure project, which 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 project will provide corridor wide improvements to the guide signing and lighting between the 12th Street Expressway and D Street SW.
