Construction Advisory

On Monday and Tuesday June 10-11, 2019, additional construction vehicles will be on site and temporary traffic control will be put in place throughout the day to move vehicles and equipment in and out of the construction areas as crews complete a time-sensitive portion of the work. Please expect temporary traffic delays. Access to the parking garage will be maintained but please be aware that construction vehicles will be entering and exiting the job site. All work will be performed in accordance with the applicable traffic control permits.

On Tuesday June 11, 2019, work hours will be extended to 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. as crews complete the system tie-in, a time-sensitive portion of the work.

Project Overview:

We are replacing a portion of the protection system to improve the safety and reliability of natural gas service for the entire Washington, D.C., metropolitan region. This project is just one of many infrastructure improvements being made across the region.

Construction will occur within the construction fenced areas at the following sites:

Site 1: In the green space on the north side of K Street, NW, just east of the garage entrance to 1001 30th Street NW, Washington DC 20007.

Site 2: On Capital Crescent Trail west of 34th Street, near the temporary construction trailers.

The images below shows the approximate locations of construction. All work is permitted by National Parks Service and the District Department of Transportation.

This project will use state-of-the-art equipment to capture and reinject natural gas into the system, thereby mitigating methane emiss
