New Hampshire Avenue To Become Two-Way For Stretch In Foggy Bottom

The District is about to make a big change to a very busy road in Foggy Bottom.

Next Tuesday the District Department of Transportation will change New Hampshire Avenue Northwest between Washington Circle and M Street from one-way to two-way traffic. DDOT project manager Rick Kenney says it makes sense to turn all of New Hampshire Avenue in that area to a two-way street.

“DDOT had heard from the community and businesses in particular about challenges their patrons were having with the one-way street that covered two blocks, while the rest was two-way," Kenney says. "They were getting turned around and having trouble circumventing and finding their businesses.”

The change will take effect next Tuesday at 10 a.m., after morning rush hour. On Saturday the southbound lane will be closed for striping. DDOT will also put up message signs alerting motorists of the coming change.
