More road work on South Dakota Ave. NE

The District Department of Transportation will begin paving a stretch of South Dakota Avenue NE on Thursday, which will impact traffic in both directions.

The road work, between Riggs Road and Kennedy Street, is the final phase of the intersection reconstruction at South Dakota Avenue and Riggs Road.

At least one lane will remain open in each direction at all times. But while the work is going on, there will be occasional lane closures and traffic pattern shifts on South Dakota Avenue. Signs will direct drivers through this stretch.

Once the paving work has wrapped up, traffic at this intersection will be shifted into its permanent configuration.
