Drivers and pedestrians headed to the Capital Pride Parade in Dupont Circle should plan for uneven pavement and narrowed sidewalks along Massachusetts Avenue through Embassy Row.
The resurfacing of Massachusetts Avenue between Waterside Drive near Rock Creek Park and Sheridan Circle is expected to take a couple of weeks. The lane closures associated with the paving project caused midday and afternoon traffic delays last week.
According to the District Department of Transportation, the contractor is authorized to work Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays but is also authorized to work on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
South Capitol Street is also scheduled to be closed between Malcolm X Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue all weekend long.
The closure and detours are related to the Interstate 295 projects, including the Malcolm X Avenue interchange upgrades for the new Department of Homeland Security headquarters.
Another weekend closure of the I-395 Express Lanes will likely cause volume delays for inbound drivers headed for the 14th Street Bridge as well.
Details on the street closures for Capital Pride are available here.
