Temporary Road Closure on 8th Street, NE for H Street Project Work
Metrobuses Rerouted During Construction Hours
(Washington, D.C.) - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is closing 8th Street NE from I Street to H Street on Saturday, March 27, Monday, March 28 and Tuesday, March 29 to facilitate roadway and streetcar track construction through the 8th and H streets intersection.
The roadway will be available to local traffic only. Flaggers will be on hand to assist motorists and pedestrians during work hours.
Road closures will occur March 27 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and March 29 and 30 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Alternate routes and detours include 7th or 10th streets.
The road will be fully open and no restriction will be in place on Sunday, March 28.
The 90s Metrobus routes will be rerouted during construction hours. The northbound 90, 92, and 93 Metrobuses will turn left from 8th Street onto H Street, turn right on 6th Street, turn right on I Street and proceed along I Street to 8th Street where they will return to their regular route.
During evenings and on Sunday, when the restrictions are not in effect, the northbound buses will follow their regular route.
Northbound bus passengers may continue to board the buses at the normal Metrobus stop on the east side of 8th Street just south of H Street.
The southbound 90, 92, and 93 Metrobuses were temporarily re-routed to 10th Street earlier this year, and the 8th Street bus stop for boarding the southbound buses was temporarily moved to 10th Street, just south of H Street, beside the Bank of America branch bank building.
The roadway work is part of DDOT’s H Street Reconstruction Project. Additional information about the project is available at ddot.dc.gov.
