Eastbound Closure of Virginia Avenue, NW, Near the Watergate to Remain for Three More Weeks

Due to the construction activities at the Watergate complex on Virginia Avenue, NW, in Ward 2, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will maintain the closure of all eastbound lanes from Rock Creek Parkway to 25th Street, NW, for the next three weeks.

This emergency closure is necessary because of the collapse of a garage at the Watergate on Friday, May 1. Construction teams have been working since then to ensure that the structure is stable and safe for the public.

Commuters should prepare for major traffic delays around Rock Creek Parkway and adjacent roadways. Motorists are advised to find alternative routes to their destinations. Traffic control devices have been put in place to advise drivers of the closure.

DDOT encourages all commuters to stay alert as they travel through this area.”
