Lane and Street Closures

School of Media and Public Affairs Building

Below is a listing of upcoming short-term lane closures and requests for additional work hours necessary to facilitate construction and improvements to the Foggy Bottom Campus. Project officials will coordinate activities per approved traffic control plans approved by the appropriate DC agencies. Please note that all dates are anticipated and are weather dependent.

Foggy Bottom Campus Sidewalk Repairs

Concrete sidewalks across the Foggy Bottom Campus will undergo repair work. The scope of this work is concrete only, not brick, with a focus on sections that require the most improvement. Work is permitted from 7am - 7pm, with exceptionally noisy work beginning after 8am. Periods of work will be disruptive as a jackhammer will be used to break up damaged concrete. On each work day, workers will reroute pedestrians either across the street or into the curb lane when possible. 

Work is anticipated to take place over four to five phases. The first phase was completed in August and the second phase was completed in September. Additional work anticipated during 2019. 

Maddison Hall Water Line Work

Water line work for Madison Hall is scheduled to begin mid February  and last through March. Intermittent lane closures will take place on H Street (between 22nd and 23rd Street) and 22nd Street (between G Street and H Street).  Work will take place Monday - Friday from 7:30am - 3:30pm. Periods of work may be disruptive as excavation tools will be used around the exterior of the building. Exceptionally noisy work will not begin until after 8am on weekdays. At least two overnight water outages will be required to complete this work and details will be shared once the dates are finalized.  Students will receive appropriate notice in advance of these outages
