Pedestrian-Friendly Traffic Signal Upgrades at Washington Circle Activated at Midnight on May 17, 2014

Upgrades Part of DDOT’s New Hampshire Avenue Project

  
 

 

(Washington D.C.) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will activate much-anticipated, pedestrian-friendly traffic signal upgrades at Washington Circle at 12 a.m. on Saturday, May 17, 2014. 

DDOT decided to activate the new signalization over the weekend to allow ample opportunity to monitor vehicular flow and pedestrian interaction with the new traffic system.  Six fully-signalized, high-visibility crosswalks across Washington Circle will be activated, allowing improved access into—and across—the Park. These signals complement the new ADA curb ramps that DDOT has installed to better serve persons with disabilities. Assisted by the input of the community stakeholders, DDOT redesigned the surrounding area, which has seen a significant increase in both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The agency understands the importance of pedestrian safety and these improvements are major milestones toward improving the safety of pedestrians and all users in this area. For more information about the New Hampshire Avenue Streetscape Project and to sign up for future updates please visit the project's website. Questions about the project may be directed to the Public Outreach Specialist, Ian Swain, at Ian@thecsmi.com or 202-563-5033.

New Traffic Pattern and Lane Closure at 24th & New Hampshire NW Avenue Northbound to Washington Circle As Part of the Streetscape Project

***TRAFFIC ADVISORY***         

(Washington, D.C.) New Hampshire Avenue Reconstruction/Resurfacing Project: From 24th Street to Washington Circle on New Hampshire Avenue NW, there will be a northbound lane closure, while; southbound lane continues to be active. The closure will start Thursday September 26, 2013 till the end of October, 2013;weather permitting.

 Over the last two weeks, the contractor has been conducting conduit trench operations. During this process, we identified a significant disintegration of the existing road base. Due to this major problem, DDOT executed a scope of work change requiring the installation of a new road base.  As such, the vehicular traffic flow and pedestrian access will be impacted over the next several weeks. On Monday, September 23rd, the sidewalk on the east side will be closed for two weeks for pedestrian traffic. Pedestrians will have a temporary walkway protected by barriers on both sides so they can still utilize New Hampshire Avenue between 24th & Washington Circle during the sidewalk reconstruction. Traffic headed northbound will do so through 24th street and make a right on K Street into Washington Circle. Traffic headed southbound on New Hampshire Ave headed towards 24th St will have access and continue.

All construction activities are contingent upon weather conditions. 

Motorists are advised to stay alert as they travel through or near this work zone area and to plan ahead to minimize delays while traveling through this corridor.
