A mile and a half of Connecticut Avenue NW—between Cleveland Park and Chevy Chase, D.C.—is slated for roughly one month of temporary lane closures due to road resurfacing, according to the District Department of Transportation (DDOT). The busy road will have at least one northbound and one southbound travel lane open at all times during the project. The work is scheduled to begin September 3 and last until October 4, weather permitting.

“Parking restriction signs will be posted at least 72 hours in advance at locations where parking will not be allowed,” DDOT says in a release Friday. “Traffic controls will be in place to warn drivers approaching the areas. Motorists should anticipate moderate delays due to the lane closures.” The construction work is authorized for weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The L1 and L2 Metrobus lines run along the avenue.

The work will take place on either side of the Van Ness–UDC Metro station, between Porter Street and Nebraska Avenue NW. A map of the construction area, which is bracketed by the University of the District of Columbia’s campus and Howard University properties, is below.
