Construction On Rock Creek Parkway

The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority advises that construction will impact traffic on Rock Creek Parkway.

The DC Water and Sewer Authority (DC WASA) has informed the United States Park Police that utility work scheduled for the next two – three months will require a temporary lane closure on Rock Creek Parkway. The closure will be limited to off-peak hours, but traffic delays are still possible and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible.

The DC WASA construction is part of their Rock Creek Sewer Separation and Water Main Replacement project, CSO 037. Work will begin Monday, January 25, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and will take a minimum of 60 days to complete.

During construction, the northbound lane on Rock Creek Parkway will be closed for about 500 feet at Waterside Drive, N.W. Standard traffic control devices will be in place.
