Some more closures are headed to Duke Street next week courtesy of the I-395 Bridge Rehabilitation project.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) said the street will have periodic closures from Sunday, Aug. 7 to Wednesday, Aug. 17.
According to VDOT:
- Eastbound Duke Street (Route 236) will be closed at I-395 from 11 p.m. Sunday night Aug. 7 to 11 p.m. Wednesday night, Aug. 10
- Westbound Duke Street will be closed from 11 p.m. Sunday night, Aug. 14 to 11 p.m. Wednesday night, Aug. 17
The closures allow VDOT to work on pavement repairs on Duke Street as part of the bridge rehabilitation project.
“The pavement work is part of the project to rehabilitate the Duke Street bridge over I-395,” VDOT said in the release. “The improvements will extend the overall life of the bridge and improve safety for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians, and include replacing the concrete bridge deck and beams, upgrading the westbound sidewalk to a shared-use path, and widening the eastbound sidewalk. The project is scheduled for completion in winter 2023/24.”
All interchange ramps will remain open during the eastbound closure, but the northbound I-395 ramp to westbound Duke Street and the ramp from westbound Duke Street to southbound I-395 will be closed.
According to the release:
During the multi-day closures, traffic will be detoured via the following routes:
- Eastbound Duke Street: Southbound I-395, eastbound Edsall Road (Route 648, Exit 2A) and northbound I-395 back to eastbound Duke Street
- Westbound Duke Street: Northbound I-395, westbound Seminary Road (Exit 4) and southbound I-395 back to westbound Duke Street
VDOT said drivers on Duke Strete should expect delays and seek alternate routes.
