Canal Road Lane Closure, Beginning Thursday, April 26

Dear Georgetown Faculty and Staff,

Starting this Thursday, April 26 through Thursday, May 10, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will temporarily close the eastbound right lane on Canal Road, NW between M Street and Foxhall Road, NW. The other eastbound lane and the two westbound lanes will remain open. 

The closures will occur from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, weather permitting.  

The closures are needed for construction repairs occurring along this corridor, including repairs to the concrete, curbs, gutters and catch basin. Closures will take place during non-rush hour periods to mitigate impacts, however, motorists may experience moderate-to-heavy delays. Please be advised to stay alert and observant of the work zone while traveling in this area. Traffic controls will be in place to warn drivers approaching the areas. 

For more information about D.C. traffic and road advisories, please visit the District Department of Transportation website.
