One-Day Closure Set for 6th and 8th Streets, NE
Closures in Place for H Street Reconstruction Project
(Washington, D.C.) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be closing 6th and 8th Streets, NE between H and G Streets on Saturday, December 4 for construction work. The 700 blocks of 6th and 8th Streets will be closed between 7:30 am and 4 pm, weather permitting, to accommodate concrete pours across the 6th and H Street intersection and the installation of streetcar tracks at the 8th and H Street intersection.
Local access will be maintained on 6th and 8th Streets for residents only.
3rd Street will remain open and may be used as an alternative for northbound 6th and 8th Streets. 10th Street will remain open and may be used as an alternative for southbound 8th Street.
Temporary signs and traffic control measures will be in place to alert and guide the traveling public through this area.
The Metrobus 90 and 92 lines will be detoured from their regular routes and stops in the 700 block of 8th Street. At the 8th Street intersection with G Street, northbound buses will be re-routed west on G Street to 3rd Street, north on 3rd to H Street, east on H Street to 8th Street, and north on 8th Street to resume their normal route. The northbound buses will make a stop at the northeast corner of 8th and H Streets, instead of at the regular bus stop on 8th Street just south of H Street.
Southbound 90 and 92 buses will be detoured at K Street, where they will be re-routed to go east on K Street to 10th Street, south on 10th to G Street, and west on G to 8th Street where they will resume their normal route. During this period, the southbound buses will make a stop at the southwest corner of 10th and H Streets, instead of at their regular stop on 8th Street just south of H Street.
The work is part of DDOT’s H Street Reconstruction Project. More information about the project is available on the DDOT website, dashboard.ddot.dc.gov under the Ward 6 Projects Link. You can also contact the project office at 202-388-3081.
