DDOT had a press release about a week ago, but I didn't get a chance to post about it until now. From the press release: "The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to begin work to resurface Pennsylvania Avenue, NW from 3rd Street to 15th Street, and Independence Avenue, SW from Washington Avenue to 1st Street. The nearly $2 million roadway project is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 11, 2008 with completion set for October 30th, 2008, weather permitting." This resurfacing project is in anticipation of Inauguration Day, which takes place on January 20, 2009. Here's some more from the press release: "Work will occur both during daytime and evening hours. Daytime hours will be from 9:30am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday with all lanes accessible for morning and afternoon rush hours. Milling and overlay work will be done nightly between 8pm and 3am. Some lane reductions should be expected during work hours." So the streets along the parade route will be pothole free for the new president!
