U Street Construction To Cause Big Headaches Into 2013:
WASHINGTON -- With streetscaping work nearly complete on 18th Street NW in Adams Morgan, construction crews will start reshaping a new busy corridor: U Street from 9th to 14th streets NW.
On Monday, the District of Columbia's Department of Transportation will begin construction to "improve and landscape the sidewalk areas, repair the roadway, and perform upgrades to the streetlights, traffic signals and storm drains," according to the project website.
The U Street work will begin at 9th Street and over the next year push westward to 14th Street. The work is expected to be complete by spring 2013.
