Construction on New York Ave. could snarl evening commute

Tim Bracken,

WASHINGTON – A work zone will close lanes on New York Avenue NE Monday evening.

Starting at 7:30 p.m. and continuing through 4 a.m. Tuesday, inbound New York Avenue will be closed at 4th Street NE and outbound traffic will have a single lane open.

Inbound traffic will be directed to 4th Street NE to Florida Avenue to get back to inbound New York Avenue.

DDOT is advising drivers to use Rhode Island Avenue or H Street NE as alternates.

Another pending work zone in Southeast could cause traffic headaches in the daytime hours into next week.

Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 30, traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue could see delays going across the Sousa Bridge between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. while crews install new signs, poles and light fixtures.

Crews will work on one side of the bridge at a time, reducing travel to a single lane.

Work is scheduled to be completed by Sunday, Feb. 10.
