Penn. Ave. project to cause delays

A $30 million construction project along Pennsylvania Avenue east of the Anacostia River will result in traffic delays and pedestrian restrictions beginning Saturday, according to the District Department of Transportation.

The Pennsylvania Avenue Great Streets Project, funded through the federal stimulus act, will begin construction between 27th Street and Branch Avenue SE. The work will include the reconstruction of the roadway and sidewalks on the south side of Pennsylvania Avenue, closing the far-right eastbound lane and sidewalk.

Three travel lanes will remain open at all times, DDOT said. A reversible lane will ensure that there are two lanes for peak traffic during rush hours, and one lane for traffic in the opposite direction.
