Construction Starts on First St, NE in Noma, Should Last until Feb. 2014


From DDOT:

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will begin making extensive infrastructure improvements and repairs on First Street, NE between G Street, NE and New York Avenue, NE starting on May 28, 2013. These repairs and improvements should be completed by the end of February 2014, weather permitting.

Construction hours in the area will be Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. During construction, only one southbound lane on First Street, NE will remain open to traffic and curbside parking will be halted along this corridor. However, access to adjacent businesses and residences in the area will be maintained.

DDOT will be installing the following improvements in this corridor during this project:

· New roadway, cycle track and rain gardens
· New streetlights, traffic signals, granite curbs, storm drains and brick gutters
· Upgraded sidewalk and pedestrian ramps

Traffic control signs will be in place to guide travelers in the corridor and direct traffic to alternative routes. Motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists are urged to stay alert and use caution when traveling by the work zone.
