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.
On or about Tuesday, February 27th, 3rd Street will reopen to two-way traffic. CSX urges all drivers to use caution as traffic patterns change through this area. Pedestrian access will continue to be maintained. This work is dependent on favorable weather conditions. CSX will provide updates as the work progresses.
