The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will temporarily close sidewalks on the Francis Scott Key Bridge in the evenings, alternating between southbound toward Rosslyn, Va., and northbound toward Georgetown.
The closures started Sunday and last through Friday, Oct. 6, weather permitting. They will occur 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday. Tuesday and Wednesday nights are reserved as alternate workdays.
During the closures, pedestrian and bicycle access on the bridge will shift to the side not undergoing work. Marked sidewalk detours will be in place.
The closures are a part of the ongoing Key Bridge Rehabilitation Project and allow for the repair and repainting of the bridge’s steel rails.
Pedestrians and bicyclists are advised to stay alert while traveling through this work area.
