It looks like big delays are going to be the unfortunate reality on outbound New York Ave. for most of the weekend. The District Department of Transportation just put out a press release saying two lanes will be closed on New York Ave. until Sunday afternoon. Here's the pertinent section:
"Due to necessary roadway repairs resulting from last week's water main break at New York and Montana avenues in northeast, 2 outbound or eastbound lanes will remain closed until Sunday afternoon as repair materials cure. One lane will remain open. Motorists are advised to expect delays along this route. Alternate routes include Rhode Island Avenue and Bladensburg Road. A follow up advisory will be sent as soon as the lanes are reopened on Sunday.
Updated, 3:33 p.m."
Outbound New York Ave. remains backed up from Florida Ave. as crews continue to repair that broken water main.
Transportation editor Michael Bolden reports this morning that outbound traffic on New York Avenue from Montana to Florida avenues is sluggish as crews repair the road from an earlier water main break. Lanes have been reduced from three to one. Expect delays.
