Sidewalk Closure & Lane Shift on 26th Street NE for Car Barn Training Center Construction Posted on June 17, 2016 Please be advised that beginning Friday, June 17, 2016 through Monday, August 22, 2016, the sidewalk along the west side of 26th Street will be closed to pedestrian traffic to allow for the installation of utilities and to provide a staging area during construction. The sidewalk will be closed between Benning Road NE and just south of the Langston Golf course driveway, which will remain accessible throughout the sidewalk closure. Temporary pedestrian barriers will be installed to accommodate northbound and southbound pedestrian traffic along the east side of 26th Street NE. Pedestrians traveling northbound on the east side of 26th street will be directed east through the crosswalk on Benning Road, then north along the temporary pedestrian barriers. Pedestrians may use the temporary crosswalk south of the Langston Golf Course driveway to get back to the east side of 26th Street. Pedestrians traveling southbound on the west side of 26th Street will be detoured across the temporary crosswalk near Langston Golf Course, along the temporary pedestrian barrier, to the crosswalk at Benning Road. Please be advised that a portion of both the southbound and northbound lanes on 26th Street will be reserved for staging areas and pedestrians. Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling through the workzone. Westbound Metrobus X2 service will not be impacted by the closure. Please note that all scheduled dates are subject to weather impacts. We ask that motorists and pedestrians use caution as they travel through or near the work zone, and follow all restrictions. Please watch for advance warning signs alerting motorists to changes in traffic patterns and detours. All construction activities are contingent upon weather, material and equipment availability and other unforeseen conditions. We encourage you to contact us at any time to share concerns or request more information at [email protected] or 202-388-7927. Thank you for your patience!
