Traffic control officers will be on the scene at the beginning and end of these detours, according to the District Department of Transportation. But you should expect some delays if you’re heading that way. Try using Rhode Island Avenue or H Street instead.

The roadway will also be closed at 10 p.m. on June 29, and reopened at 11 a.m. the following morning..

These closures are both part of the New York Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project.
