Construction Update – 20th Street Closure on October 20

By October 17, 2018 No Comments

On Saturday, October 20, 20th Street will be closed from S Street, NW to Florida Avenue, NW from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. A mobile crane will be used to place materials on the roof necessary for completing roof ballasting. Roof ballasting includes the pouring of river rock gravel. Our roof, when completed, will feature a combination of gravel and green roof, which among many benefits, absorbs heat and insulates the building to save us energy.

Please be aware of the following details of the work:

  • Parking on 20th Street will be restricted 3 hours in advance on both sides of the street (starting at 4 a.m.).
  • The sidewalk will be closed in front of the AGU building only.
  • 20th Street will not be accessible by vehicles between S Street and Florida Avenue, except for local traffic, which will have access to the 20th Street alley via S Street and 19th Street.
  • Normal vehicular traffic will use 19th Street as a signed detour.
  • Entrances to apartment buildings opposite the AGU building on 20th Street will not be impacted during this time.
  • Glen’s Garden Market on 20th Street will be open during their normal business hours and accessible by foot during this period of work.

As construction continues we will work with the project team to keep the community informed of any future closures.
