Diagonal Road, the very literally named road between Duke Street and King Street near the King Street Metro station, will be closed this week during working hours to through traffic for milling and repaving.

“Work will be performed between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.,” the city said in a press release. “During this time Diagonal Road will be closed to through traffic. However, access to parking garages and the Embassy Suites Hotel will be maintained from Duke Street only.”

Pedestrians will still be able to access the road on the east sidewalk. Bus traffic is only permitted on the small section that connects the King Street Metro station bus loop to Duke Street. The Diagonal Road repaving is the latest in a series of repavings across Old Town.

“City staff will be onsite managing the project and roads will fully reopen to traffic at the end of each shift,” the city said. “The City recognizes the inconveniences this road closure may cause. Thank you for your patience and support as we work to improve the City’s infrastructure.”
