D AVENUE PROJECT: Crews are scheduled to place the first layer of asphalt along the 10-block length of D Avenue on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 23-24, which will result in the closure of the entire road. Only the State Street and Tenth Street intersections with D Avenue will remain open while the asphalt is cooling; all other north-south traffic will be blocked from crossing, including at the intersections that have previously been open. Crews are hoping to be able to reopen the entire 10-block length of D Avenue by Aug. 27. However, intermittent daytime closures of parts of the road will still occur while crews work on the stormwater rain gardens, sidewalk and bollard lighting. There will also be one more full closure of the entire road at a yet-to-be-determined time while crews pour the final top layer of pavement.
