Phase 2 of roadway construction along H Street/Benning Road started in December 2012. About 80 percent of the work to make H/Benning streetcar-ready was completed during Phase 1 in 2011, during the Great Streets roadway reconstruction project. This phase will make the H/Benning corridor ready for the arrival of streetcars in Fall 2013.
The DC Streetcar team is hard at work along H Street and Benning Road. The following overview schedule provides a snapshot of the work slated for 2013, resulting in streetcars offloaded on H Street this fall. This summary schedule should be used for general information purposes only and is subject to change based on weather, material availability and other unforeseen conditions.
Four Construction Impact Areas were described to the public in our February 26 Construction Update public meeting. Work begins April 1 for most of these areas, running through October.
Detailed information sheets for the four primary construction impact areas are available:
- Western Turnaround (Hopscotch Bridge – 3rd St/H St)
