Repairs to Close Lanes on Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge
Beginning Jan. 3, the District Department of Transportation is scheduled to conduct repairs and bridge preservation activities on the Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge over Rock Creek Parkway, according to a DDOT traffic advisory. The off-peak lane closures on the bridge which leads to the western end of Pennsylvania Avenue in Georgetown should last only about six weeks.
The work will be conducted daily, 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., DDOT said, and the project is expected to be completed on or before Feb. 15. "The work will require closing one lane of westbound traffic over the bridge during off-peak hours. The lane closures are temporary and will not be installed until the completion of the morning rush hour and will be removed before the start of the evening rush hour."
Messages boards are in place to alert the traveling public to these closures, DDOT added. Motorists in this corridor can expect some delays but DDOT does not anticipate the lane closures will significantly impact the flow of traffic.
