The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will begin repairing and resurfacing U Street NW between 9th and 14th Streets as part of the U Street NW Streetscape Project. Work is scheduled to begin the week of May 6, weather permitting.

The complete resurfacing will take approximately three weeks to finish.

Three-Step Process

  1. Milling away two inches of the old surface from 9th to 14th Street, estimated three days.
  2. Repairing damaged concrete, about 10 days.
  3. Paving the roadway with asphalt from 9th to 14th Street, approximately three days.

DDOT says that after the asphalt has been removed, pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers should use caution in the area; the roadway will be uneven until the new asphalt surface is in place.
