O Avenue NW       

Construction Update: March 8, 2018


Work will begin on the O Avenue Paving for Progress project starting Monday, March 12, 2018.

The full project stretches from 16th Street to Ellis Boulevard NW. 

This is the first phase of a multi-year project, and includes concrete road reconstruction, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, water main, and bike lanes and sidewalk improvements.

Work beginning next week will include water main, storm sewer pipes and intakes, and sanitary sewer improvements. Once warmer weather begins, the contractor will be able to work on paving and other operations. 

Road Closures

Starting on Monday, O Avenue will be closed to through traffic between 16th Street NW to 13th Street NW; detour signs will be posted. 

During Construction

Please continue to place your garbage and recycling out in their usual locations during the project. The contractor will be responsible for taking them to an area accessible for the collection trucks, and will return them to your property. 

Future Work of the O Avenue project:

2020: 16th Street NW to 23rd Street NW
2021: 23rd Street NW to Edgewood Rd NW

By 2021, O Avenue will be completely reconstructed from Ellis Blvd to Edgewood Road.
