There is good news for those grumbling about potholes along King Street and Duke Street: repaving season will sweep over the two arterial roads this month.

Repaving work is scheduled to run this month from Tuesday, Oct. 10 to  Friday, Oct. 27.

King Street’s eastbound side is being repaved from Janneys Lane to Russell Road, ending where the city is also working on a redesign of the intersection at the foot of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial.

Duke Street will also get some work from Dulany Street — just south of the King Street Metro station — to S. Patrick Street.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant ramps are also being added to Clyde Avenue and Cameron Mills Road.

As part of the repaving work, new stormlets are also being installed on King Street, Commonwealth Avenue, and a few other locations.

Residents on streets being repaved should receive a notice one week in advance of repaving. Temporary no parking signs will be installed on the blocks and vehicles on the street in work areas will be towed.
