Headaches on the horizon

Construction updates | Travel tips l Capital Weather Gang

The rain that is messing with your travel plans in the D.C. area also is messing with the overnight construction schedules. For example, the lane and ramp closings that had been scheduled for work on the Capital Beltway's Telegraph Road interchange have been canceled. Here's a look at some D.C. street work scheduled over the next few weeks.

The District Department of Transportation offers a list of upcoming paving projects, financed with federal stimulus money. Work is scheduled to begin this week on two projects, weather permitting.
-- Irving Street from First Street NW to Michigan Avenue. One lane in each direction will be open at all times.
-- Reservoir Road NW from 37th Street to Foxhall Road. Crews will work on two blocks at a time between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. to minimize the impact on traffic. One lane in each direction will be open at all times.

These projects will start soon, but the exact date has not been set.
-- New York Avenue NE from Bladensburg Road to South Dakota Avenue.
-- Michigan Avenue from Irving Street to 7th Street NE.
-- M Street SW from South Capitol Street to Delaware Avenue.
-- Alabama Avenue SE from Pennsylvania Avenue to Bowen Road.
-- Southern Avenue SE from Branch Avenue to 34th Street.
-- Massachusetts Avenue NW from Wisconsin Avenue to Ward Circle.
-- Riggs Road NE from First Place to North Capitol Street.
