Washington Gas Upgrading Infrastructure and Service in Conjunction with the Maryland Avenue Project
Maryland Avenue NE, from 2nd St to 11th St., NE, falls under the Historic District. The work under the original DDOT Maryland Avenue Project contract consists of safety/streetscape improvements along Maryland Avenue NE.
In addition to the DDOT Maryland Avenue project, Washington Gas (a WGL company) is replacing the gas main and upgrading the services to every customer within the project limit. The utility cuts in the sidewalk will result in the deterioration of the existing sidewalk. It is necessary to ensure existing sidewalks, curb, and gutter are upgraded to the Historic District standards.
DDOT has secured additional funds to replace the existing concrete curb, gutter, and PCC sidewalk at Maryland Avenue NE, from 2nd St., NE to 14th St., NE between proposed bump-outs at the intersections and replace with the brick sidewalk, granite curb and brick gutter in the historic district.
This will require additional 206 calendars days to complete the work with new project completion date of January 3, 2022.
