Washington, DC - As part of the installation of new dynamic message signs, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will perform 20-minute temporary nighttime closures of the eastbound lanes of I-695 (Southeast / Southwest Freeway), between 7th Street, SW and South Capitol Street, from Monday, May 12 to Wednesday, May 14, 2014; from 10 pm. and 5 am. Motorists will also encounter a left-lane closure on westbound I-695 during this time as well. These closures are needed to allow crews to erect a new overhead sign structure over I-695.
Temporary signs will be in place to alert and guide the traveling public in this area. DDOT encourages all motorists to stay alert as they travel in this corridor. All construction-related work and dates are subject to change, depending on weather, material and contractor availability or other unforeseen conditions.
