Final Paving Of The North Side of the H Street NE Intersections

At 8th, 9th, 10th Streets Scheduled Monday, May 10

Daytime Traffic Restrictions Apply To 8th, 9th, & 10th

Between H Street & I Street During Paving Operations

On Monday, May 10, construction contractors are scheduled to carry out final roadway paving of the H Street NE north side intersections at 8th, 9th, and 10th Streets. The work will be conducted between 7:00 am until completion by 5:00 pm.

During the paving period, traffic in the 800 blocks of 8th and 9th Streets between H Street and I Street will be restricted to one-way south. (On that block of 10th Street, one-way south is the standard traffic pattern.) Flaggers will be stationed at the site to assist motorists and pedestrians. Local traffic to 800-block locations will continue to have access.

Northbound motorists are advised to use 6th, 7th, or 11th Street as an alternative.

The intersections will be paved one by one. The plan is to start at 10th Street, then move to 9th Street, then 8th Street.

During the paving operations at 8th Street, the southbound 90s Metrobuses will be re-routed away from the 8th Street block between H and I Streets. Instead, the buses will travel east on K Street to 10th Street, turn right on 10th Street, then turn right on H Street to proceed west to 8th Street, and resume their normal route south on 8th Street. There will be no change in bus stop locations. Metrobus personnel will be at the site to provide assistance.

The work is part of DDOT’s H Street Reconstruction Project. More information about the project is available on the DDOT website, http://ddot.dc.gov/DC/DDOT/ under the Ward 6 portion of the “Projects and Planning” section.

Thank you for your patience. If you would like additional information or assistance, please e-mail or call me at 202.320.8534 at any time.
