Drivers won’t be able to travel through some parts of Capitol Hill this month as crews begin to repair area streets tonight.
Sections of D Street, E Street and Delaware Avenue NE are scheduled to close during the next four weekends, according to a D.C. government alert.
Starting at 8 p.m. today, D Street between 2nd Street and Delaware Avenue NE is slated to close to traffic. The closure will block 1st Street NE at its intersection with D Street.
D Street might open by the end of the day Saturday. But the closure could run until Sunday.
“The plan is to mill the streets Friday night into Saturday morning, pave the street on Saturday, and if there is time, stripe the street. Otherwise, the striping will occur on Sunday,” the alert said. “Once the paint is dry, the street will be reopened. If weather causes delay, work will push the schedule back a weekend.”
The other closures are expected to follow the same repair schedule during the following three weekends.
Those scheduled closures are:
D Street between 1st Street NE and Louisiana Avenue NW from Aug. 14 to 16. The closure will block Delaware Avenue NE where it intersects with D Street.
E Street between Columbus Circle and North Capitol Street NE from Aug. 21 to 23.
