D.C. Water and the District Department of Transportation begin an overhaul on a two-part repair project today on the eastbound side of Canal Road, near Georgetown University.

DDOT anticipates traffic delays, as the first phase of the project confine traffic to one lane of Canal Road during construction. DDOT will to close the lane from the hours of 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Drivers may want to use George Washington Parkway as an alternative. Crews may also need to work 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.

The project will revive a 48 inch water main that helps deliver drinking water around the city. The main has been leaking persistently creating poor conditions along the surrounding roadway.

In the second phase of the project, crews will be working to seal a pipe along M Street between 26th Street and New Hampshire Avenue.

The project should be completed by September 1.
