3rd St. Reduced to One Lane at Virginia Avenue


Traffic on 3rd Street SE has been restricted to one-way, northbound-only travel between I Street and the I-695 on-ramp/Virginia Avenue on the north side of the freeway. Southbound traffic approaching from the Capitol Hill area will be detoured east on G Street and south on 4th Street, unless entering the westbound I-695 on-ramp. (Trucks over 12 feet tall will be detoured to New Jersey Avenue.) Pedestrian access will be maintained across the intersection throughout this process. The 3rd Street driveway to the Capitol Quarter townhomes will remain open during this process, as will access to the parking deck and loading dock for 200 I Street SE.

A detailed detour map is now available on the project website.
