STOCK-18Commuters who travel on Georgia Avenue near Howard University will have to put up with “moderate-to-heavy delays” until May of next year, says DDOT.

On Tuesday, the city department closed one lane of traffic in each direction on Georgia Avenue NW between Barry Place and Florida Avenue NW.

DDOT says the closures are needed to construct dedicated bus lanes and a streetscape along that stretch of Georgia Avenue. The work also includes the replacement of sidewalks, curb and gutters, sidewalk ramps, mill and overlay of the roadway and new dedicated bus lanes in each direction.

These city expects to complete the project in May of 2016.
