Lane to close on N.Y. Ave.

If you're one of the intrepid commuters who brave the construction on New York Avenue every day, Friday will bring more challenges.

The District Department of Transportation will close the right westbound lane of New York from Fairview Avenue to the site of the construction of the new Ninth Street Bridge. The closure is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Friday and last through 6:30 a.m. on Monday, weather permitting.

DDOT said the closure is necessary as crews pour concrete associated with the bridge construction. The new bridge is scheduled to open in January, followed by demolition of the old one. The project, which began last year, is scheduled to be completed in May 2011.
