The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) would like to extend its appreciation for your patience and understanding, while we continue working on the Minnesota Ave, NE Revitalization – Phase II project. 

As part of this project, DDOT will totally reconstruct the roadway, pavement and curb & gutter as well as upgrade water and storm drain utility systems. The project will also reconstruct sidewalks and update ADA wheelchair access. Finally, the project will provide new landscape, streetscape and safety features including upgraded street lights, traffic signals, roadway signage and pavement markings.

Traffic advisories will be posted on the website and shared with the community when closures and other traffic impacts occur. Construction signage and flaggers, when needed, will be in place to direct vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians safely through the construction zone. DDOT encourages all to stay alert and obey flaggers and construction signage.

We realize that closures and the noise levels during demolition and reconstruction can cause some inconvenience to the neighboring community, and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. The project team is working to complete this project as quickly and as safely as possible and we thank you for your patience and understanding, as we complete the Revitalization of Minnesota Ave, NE – Phase II.
