Work continues to progress on schedule on the street and open-space restoration at the intersection of 3rd Street and Virginia Avenue. New paving, granite curbing, sidewalks, drainage and underground work for streetlights are well underway. Driveway access for the Capitol Quarter townhomes has been switched from the temporary driveway to the new driveway from Virginia Avenue SE.
As soon as the week of February 19th, 3rd Street will reopen both lanes to two-way traffic. CSX urges all drivers to use caution through this intersection. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout this process. This work is dependent on favorable weather conditions and CSX will provide updates as the work progresses.
CSX appreciates the community’s patience as we work expeditiously toward completing the project and the streetscape enhancements.
