More Paving on Benning Road NE
Greetings from California. I see that the District Department of Transportation has sent out an alert for the long-suffering drivers who bounce along Benning Road NE during the lengthy repair project. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty announced last month that the resurfacing would be speeded up, and here's what happens next.
DDOT plans to pave the center lane on the eastbound side between 16th and 21st streets starting Thursday. Eastbound traffic on Benning will be down to one lane from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Monday, as long as the weather cooperates.
The eastbound curb lane will be open all the time, and and the Metrobus stops there will not be affected. On the westbound side, you'll have two lanes.
Following the mayor's announcement, crews have been working double shifts to complete the paving of two lanes in each direction by mid-August.
