North and South Side Curb Lane Closures for Additional Striping along H Street NE

Please be advised that the parking lanes on the north and south sides of H Street NE will be temporarily closed beginning Friday, August 14, 2015 for installation of red striping along the parking lanes between 3rd Street NE through 14th Street NE.

The red striping is an important safety upgrade that will address the safety and operational matter of vehicles parking outside of the white line parking boundary. The DC Streetcar design-build team will be adding red striping between the parking lane and existing concrete track slab to alert motorists of open-door hazards within the streetcar guideway.

Temporary closures will last approximately one week. All work is contingent upon weather.

Closures:

  • Friday, 8/14: Parking on the north and south sides of H Street NE between 3rd Street NE and 14th Street NE will be prohibited from  7:00 am to 2:00 pm to prepare the roadway for striping. Lanes will be flushed with water in order to remove the residual oils and debris. All parking restrictions will be removed by 2:00 pm.
  • Monday, 8/17 & Tuesday, 8/18: Parking on the north and south sides of H Street NE between 3rd Street NE and 7th Street NE will be prohibited from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm for the installation of the red striping.
  • Tuesday, 8/18 & Wednesday, 8/19: Parking on the north and south sides of H Street NE between 7th Street NE and 10th Street NE will be prohibited from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm for the installation of the red striping.

Metrobus service will continue during the preparatory and striping work. Access to bus stops will be maintained with the assistance of flaggers at each stop. The travel lanes adjacent to the parking lanes will also be closed as the crews perform the work. Parking restrictions will be lifted as the work progresses from block-to-block. Pedestrians are asked to follow all signage, use crosswalks, ADA curb ramps; and to remain alert and use caution while traveling through the work zone.

 

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!
