Construction Update: E Street to Close for Construction

Road will be closed for eight months

June 24, 2016

Washington, DC—The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will close both eastbound and westbound E Street between 4th and 5th Streets, NW, in the Judiciary Square neighborhood starting Monday, June 27. The road will be closed for eight months as construction ramps up on the National Law Enforcement Museum.  
 
The National Law Enforcement Museum will tell the story of American law enforcement through high-tech interactive exhibits, a comprehensive collection of artifacts, extensive resources for research, and diverse educational programming. The Museum is projected to open 2018.

Vehicular and bicycle traffic will be rerouted to the parallel streets (F Street and Indiana Avenue, NW) immediately north and south of the construction site. Pedestrians will be allowed to use the north side of E Street during construction.

Signs will be posted to guide and reroute pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles. The signs will indicate where pedestrians need to cross to the north side of E Street NW to avoid the construction activity.
 
Additional information regarding traffic closures and alternate routes for the duration of the construction (including printable pdfs of the alternate routes for bicycles, buses, cars, and pedestrians) can be found at www.nleomf.org/museum/construction.
