“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced that the signals at the Dupont traffic circle will be temporarily placed on flash mode between 10 am and approximately 3 pm on Tuesday, August 20 while crews upgrade the signalization system.
The traffic signals are scheduled to be turned back on as normal before the evening rush-hour period on Tuesday.
Traffic delays are anticipated to occur on Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts avenues heading through the traffic circle.
Traffic control officers will be onsite to direct traffic through this area. Motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians approaching and traveling through the circle are urged to use caution and to consider alternate routes to avoid delays.”
Hopefully the upgrades include the ability for pedestrians to cross without having to wait in the median.
