Temporary Lane Closures on Benning Road NE for Track Drain Work Posted on August 5, 2014 Beginning Thursday, August 7th, at 7:00am, there will be temporary single lane closures to allow for track drain work going westbound on Benning Road NE. Work will take place near the intersections of 16th, 17th, 20th and 21st Streets NE. All work is contingent upon weather. Expect track drain work at these intersections to be completed by Sunday, August 10th. Parking restrictions will be in place in the curb lanes near the work zones in order to maintain two lanes of traffic. All parking restrictions will be lifted upon completion. Loading zone areas will not be impacted. Metrobus will maintain regular bus routes and stops along the corridor. There will be no sidewalk closures during the temporary lane closures. 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) 210-3700. Thank you for your patience!
