Sidewalk repair coming to Quincy St NW

If the sidewalks along Quincy have let you down, tripped you up or flooded your yard, DDOT wants you to know they're going to be ripping up, tearing out and replacing the sidewalk.

Starting on or around July 7th, DDOT will begin replacing the sidewalks along Quincy Street from 9th Street NW to 13th Street NW. This means there will be long stretches of no parking signs along Quincy during project. 

Their announcement is below (h/t to Commissioner Zach Teutsch) and available as a PDF:

Quincy Street from 9th Street to 13th Street NW

DDOT is coming to your neighborhood to improve your sidewalks! As part of the Americans with Disability Act Compliance Program, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be coming to your neighborhood on about July 7th , 2016 weather permitting, to perform repair work and upgrades to the existing sidewalks within your block. This work may include, but not limited to:

  • Upgrading of curb ramps and sidewalks through repair and/or replacement;
  • Correcting drainage issues;
  • Performing repair work at intersections as part of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance Program; and
  • Installation of porous Flexible Paving (Flexi-Pave) in selected areas.

DDOT will work to maintain traffic and access while repairs and updates are done. Due to the nature of work, curbside parking may be restricted during construction hours. "NO PARKING" signs will be posted seventy-two (72) hours prior to the commencement of construction in those areas. All work will be conducted from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.

DDOT thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding during the construction to make these improvements on your street. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Project Engineer Mr. Robert Horton at 202-207-4970 or
