IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PIERCE STREET NE
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will temporarily close Pierce Street NE, between North Capitol Street and First Street NE. The closure will start at 10:30 am on Wednesday, August 23, and may extend through Friday, August 25, weather permitting. During this time, the street will be closed to vehicular traffic, but sidewalks will remain open.
The street closure will occur to convert Pierce Street NE from a one-way to a two-way street as part of a pilot project. As part of the project, 21 parking spaces will be removed. DDOT has coordinated with Advisory Neighborhood Commission 6C and with the NoMa BID on this pilot street-conversion project. The project's goal is to improve access to and mobility in NoMa.
Throughout the pilot, DDOT will collect data as well as ANC and community feedback.
Traffic controls will be in place throughout the work areas. Motorists are advised to use alternative routes during the closure.
