Lane of South Potomac to close for roof work

Beginning at 3 a.m. Monday, the western through-lane of South Potomac Street will be closed between Washington Street and the First Hose Fire Co. so that work crews can install structural steel on the roof of the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts. The eastern through-lane will remain open to traffic.

Sidewalks on the western side of the street will be closed at either end of the work zone during working hours. Traffic approaching the work zone will encounter cones, barricades, flagpersons and other traffic-control devices. On-street parking will not be available in the work zone.

The contractor anticipates that a crane will remain in place, and that this portion of South Potomac Street will remain closed until Sept. 26.
