(Washington, DC)  The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will continue to perform single-lane mobile maintenance work in both directions on I-395 between New York Avenue (US Route 50) and the Southeast/Southwest Freeway (I-695) to remove the icicles that have formed, and are hanging from the roof of the tunnel bores.

The work will be done between midnight and 4 am. This emergency work is needed to protect the public from falling icicles and other debris. The maintenance will be done in one tunnel bore at a time, and is expected to last 90 minutes each, weather and temperature permitting.  

For more information, contact the Program Manager Reginald Arno at (202) 345-7105.
