D.C. Department of Transportation surveyors aren’t done with their examination of the roadway under Thomas Circle NW yet, likely leaving drivers with “moderate delays” as they travel through the area in the coming days, according to the agency.
Crews are set to close single eastbound and westbound lanes of Massachusetts Avenue NW under the circle on an alternating basis from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., starting Thursday. The surveying work is expected to end the following Thursday, according to a DDOT representative.
Lane closures due to surveyors under Thomas Circle began on Dec. 14. But a DDOT announcement at the time said the work only was supposed to last about two weeks, depending on the weather.
Message boards and cones will be used to close the lanes. Only one lane will be closed at a time.
The closures are necessary to conduct survey work on Massachusetts Avenue, NW, under Thomas Circle.
Moderate delays are anticipated. Motorists are urged to stay alert and to use caution when traveling through the work zones.
