“Traffic Advisory – Convention Center Streetscape Construction Activity” – PoPville
“Please be advised that there will be streetscape construction activity on the exterior of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center during the overall period of January 2023 through October 2023. This construction includes removal of existing trees, pavers and base material where the new planters will be installed. New trees will be planted during the spring planting season. In the interest of public safety during this process, bicycle racks are cordoning off the work area which includes the curb lane and a portion of the sidewalk, while allowing for pedestrian access.
The construction activity is currently on N Street (between 7th and 9th Streets, NW) through the end of January 2023.
The anticipated schedule for the remainder of the work (by area, weather permitting) is as follows:
9th Street (between M and N Streets): end of January – end of April
9th Street (between L and M Streets): end of March – end of June
7th Street (between L and M Streets): end of April – end of July
7th Street (between L Street and Mt. Vernon Place): beginning of July – end of September
9th Street (between L and Mt. Vernon Place): end of July – end of October
Throughout the construction and to the extent possible, at least half of the sidewalk in each affected area will remain available for pedestrian access. There may be brief temporary intermittent sidewalk closures for public safety reasons.
Updates and/or changes to the schedule will be provided as additional details become available.
As always, we appreciate your patience and understanding.”
