Starting June 11, drivers along Newport Way Northwest should expect delays as construction begins on a new roundabout at 2290 Newport Way N.W.
Expect one-way alternating traffic from 8:45 a.m.-3:45 p.m. weekdays while crews complete the initial utility work. As construction progresses, two-way traffic will be open via temporary lanes, which will be relocated to accommodate the work.
At times, both lanes will be stopped temporarily. Developers of the Gateway and Riva projects have – and will continue – to coordinate their efforts to keep traffic moving along the corridor.
The roundabout is expected to be substantially complete in late fall 2018, with landscaping to follow.
