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.

Corcoran School of Art and Design: 

  • Ongoing:  The curblane directly in front of the building on E Street is closed to accommodate construction dumpsters. 

Old Main (1922 F Street) + 1918 F Street:

  • Due to renovations of Old Main and 1918 F Street now underway, there will be construction traffic in/out of the building via the 20th Street loading dock area in the spring/summer and within normal working hours. There will also be work in the 20th Street loading dock and the alley on F Street between Old Main & 1918 F Street, each with exterior trash chutes.  All activity is anticipated to take place on-site and not anticipated to create any noticeable noise or traffic impacts.  We will provide additional updates on this project which continues through the end of 2018.

Science & Engineering Hall: 

  • June 23 (anticipated/pending permits - originally scheduled June 16):  To accommodate a crane needed to deliver materials needed for renovations to the Science and Engineering Hall’s green roof, the east and west bound lanes of H Street and the sidewalk on north side of H Street between 22nd and 23rd Streets will be closed between 5am-2pm.  The north side of the H Street sidewalk will be closed to pedestrians for the duration of the street closure.
