Daily Dual-Lane Closures on Benning Road NE between 25th Place NE and Oklahoma Avenue NE for CBTC Construction

Please be advised that beginning Monday, April 4, 2016, there will be a daily dual-lane closure of the right and center westbound through lanes on Benning Road NE between 25th Place NE and Oklahoma Ave NE for the installation of a sanitary sewer line for the Car Barn Training Center (CBTC).

The lane closures will last from approximately 9:30 am to 5:30 pm daily.

Advanced warning signs will be posted ahead of the work zone on westbound Benning Road and southbound 26th Street NE. The north sidewalk along Benning Road will be closed to pedestrian traffic between 26th Street and 24th Place. Pedestrian detour signs will be placed on Benning Road NE at the crosswalk directing pedestrians to the south side of Benning Road NE at 24th Street NE and at 26th Street NE.

Westbound Metrobus X2 service will not be impacted by the closure. Be advised that passengers will be required to board from the street, inside the lane closure east of the intersection at 26th and Benning Road NE. Passengers requiring wheelchair access may utilize the handicap ramp at the northeast corner of the intersection.

All work is contingent upon weather and is anticipated to be complete by Saturday, April 30th. Sidewalk closures will remain through the duration of the CBTCII construction.

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 construction@dcstreetcar.com or 202-388-7927. Thank you for your patience!
