14th Street NW reopens to traffic

Update: DDOT tweeted at 4:57 p.m. that northbound 14th Street NW has reopened to traffic.

Original post: The District Department of Transportation says the northbound lane of 14th Street NW will be closed from Park Road to Monroe Street until about 11 a.m. today for paving. Park Road and Monroe Street will remain open to traffic traveling across 14th Street.

The southbound lane will remain open.

Here's a possible detour suggested by DDOT.
-- Turn right on Park Road from 14th Street.
-- Turn left on Holmead Place.
-- Turn left on Monroe Street.
-- Turn right onto 14th Street continuing northbound.

The work is part of the Columbia Heights Streetscape Project. Work was supposed to be mostly done on June 30, but relocating utilities and other incidents, like a suspicious package, slowed down the work. DDOT officials anticipate the barricades and construction barriers will be gone by June 9.
