Notice of Pavement Restoration Work on R Street NW Between Florida Avenue and 22nd Street

-Information provided by the District Department of Transportation (DDOT):

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will conduct a Roadway Resurfacing Project along R Street, NW between Florida Avenue and 22nd Street on or about Friday September 28, 2018.

This work will be performed in two phases for asphalt and concrete construction. The total time for construction is estimated to take 10 days with the possibility of a delay between concrete and asphalt construction.

Roadway resurfacing projects may include the construction of roadway subgrade, concrete curb & gutter, concrete driveway aprons, brick sidewalk, concrete sidewalk, wheelchair ramps, roadway striping, removal of asphalt, asphalt paving, crosswalks striping and bike lane striping.

If unforeseen issues such as inclement weather do not permit our contractor to begin work on the date scheduled a new start date for construction will be posted on the No Parking Signs located on the poles and trees throughout the construction project site.

Curbside parking will be restricted at this location from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM. “NO PARKING” signs will be posted seventy-two (72) hours prior to the commencement of construction in your area. All residents in this area will receive a copy of this letter alerting them to this work. All work will be conducted from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.

Throughout construction access to surrounding homes and businesses will be maintained. District Traffic Control Standards might require the partial closure or complete closure to all traffic on the block where work is taking place. If the block is closed to traffic, residents may access their homes by coming up to the cones at the closure and requesting access to the traffic control flag person.

DDOT is unable to remove and reinstall any ornamental fence or wood timbers in the tree space area. Residents are asked to remove these items before construction begins as DDOT will not be responsible for any damage that might occur during construction.

DDOT thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding during the construction. If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact DDOT Call Center at (202) 671-2700, by email at, or be on the lookout for the inspector on site.
