Transportation Advisory: 395 Express Lanes Project - Eads Street Construction Project Updates and Major Traffic Pattern Change Alert

Construction work along Eads Street between the Pentagon Reservation and Army Navy Drive has begun since June 21 to prepare for traffic signal installation and roadway improvement. The Eads Street construction work will be completed in several phases this summer and continue through the fall.

The current Phase 1 of the Eads Street construction work is near completion. Phase 2 of the Eads Street construction work will begin on or about ***Monday, July 16***, subject to weather conditions, and will require extensive traffic pattern changes throughout the day. Your commute and travel plans will be significantly impacted.

On or about Monday, July 16, Phase 2 of the Eads Street construction will begin along the west side of Eads Street (existing southbound travel lanes) to demolish concrete, widen pavement, and install drainage, sidewalks, overhead structures, and curb and gutter in preparation for the 4th lane addition on South Rotary Road to access the future 395 Express/Toll Lanes.    Duration of Eads Street Phase 2 construction work will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks, or mid to late September 2018, subject to weather conditions.

All traffic along Eads Street between South Rotary Road and Army Navy Drive will be shifted to the east side of Eads Street (existing northbound travel lanes), with access to the I-395 HOV Ramps preserved. There will be different restrictions and detours during the AM Peak between 6:00am to 9:00am, the off-peak period from 9:00am to 3:00pm, and the PM Peak from 3:00pm to 8:00pm. Detours with signage are set up on Eads Street, South Rotary Road, as well as surrounding roadways such as Fern Street (see attached diagrams). Intermittent/Temporary Nighttime and Weekend Closures of Eads Street may occur. Detours with signage will be set up to re-direct traffic.

As current traffic volume along Eads Street is near capacity during peak periods, we expect significant traffic congestion and delays along Eads Street and access to I-395 HOV On-Ramps.

Employees are encouraged to plan ahead, map out alternate routes (see attached for alternate option), allow additional time for travel, and consider alternative modes of transportation, including regional and local public transit buses and Metrorail. Drivers and pedestrians are also encouraged to exercise safety and caution, follow signage and traffic control directions, and avoid Eads Street as much as possible.

Detailed information about Phase 3 of the Eads Street construction work will be provided as we approach the Fall. Visit for more information. If you have any questions, please contact the WHS TMPO at
