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.

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.
  • In preparation for the completion of this project furniture delivery will begin to be scheduled. The delivery teams will use the existing loading and unloading spaces in front of the building so that no other parking spaces or lanes will be required. Delivery trucks are being encouraged to deliver their shipments on the early side of permitted working hours to get the work done during periods of lesser pedestrian traffic.  Unloading shouldn't take more than 3 hours once the truck arrives.

    The current deliveries are scheduled for Tuesday, November 27; Monday, December 3 and Monday, December 10. Additional deliveries may be added as they are scheduled. 

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.
