GW Hillel sidewalk and lane closures in August

DDOT has approved the revised Traffic Control Plan (TCP) with the curb lane on 23rd Street used exclusively for pedestrian traffic.  This will remain in effect through the end of September when a covered walkway on the sidewalk of 23rd Street is planned for installation so as to open up the curb lane for parking and rush hour traffic. The only exception to the revised TCP with pedestrian traffic using the curb lane on 23rd Street will be for 3 to 4 days when the heavy equipment is being utilized to raze the structure.  During these work days, it will be unsafe to allow pedestrians to use the curb lane during working hours.  When this heavy equipment is being utilized, flag personnel will be positioned at the northeast corner of H& 23rd Streets and also G&23rd Streets to direct pedestrian traffic to 24th Street or to cross to the east side of 23rd Street to continue north or south. This direction will remain in effect from 7 am to 4:30 pm during those specific work days.
