Lane Closures and Parking Restrictions Planned for Pennsylvania Avenue, SE
Work is Part of Pennsylvania Avenue Great Streets Project
(Washington, D.C.) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be closing the lane on the south side of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE between Fort Davis Street and Southern Avenue for approximately 90 days starting on Saturday, March 12, 2011, weather permitting. The lane closure will be required to accommodate the reconstruction of the curb, gutter and sidewalks in this area.
While this lane is closed curbside parking will remain restricted. “No Parking” signs will be in place to provide warning.
The driveway on Pennsylvania Avenue that leads to the Fairfax Village parking lot will be maintained open.
Temporary signs will be in place to alert and guide the traveling public through this area.
The Pennsylvania Avenue Great Streets project covers 2 miles of construction, from 200 ft. west of 27th Street to Southern Avenue.
