Water Cut-over on 3rd Street Postponed to Week of Jan. 18


In order to prioritize moving a fire hydrant on 4th Street away from the Capitol Quarter temporary driveway, the previously announced water-main cut-over on 3rd Street between Virginia Avenue and the I-695 overpass has been postponed; it is now likely to occur during the week of Jan. 18. The work will entail saw cutting, equipment noise and lights. Some DC Water customers in that vicinity may experience a water outage. The project team will implement mitigation efforts to minimize the impact of this work, including monitoring noise levels to ensure compliance with DDOT requirements, installing noise barriers to limit sound emanating from the work site and focusing lighting on the work zone. CSX apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this work may cause. More information will be provided when it becomes available.
