Traffic Advisory: West Memorial Blvd.

West Memorial Closure

For the past week, contractors working for the City have been replacing a failing stone wall between Marsh Run and Memorial Blvd. The westbound lane of West Memorial Blvd. has been closed between Potomac Street and the entrance to the City’s Public Works Department at 51 West Memorial Blvd., while the eastbound lane has remained open. However, due to conditions encountered during the work, both lanes of Memorial Blvd. must be closed to complete the repairs. Therefore, on Wednesday, June 28th, both lanes of Memorial Blvd. will be closed to all traffic in this area. Detour routes will be posted to direct traffic around the closure. Motorists approaching the work area will encounter barricades, detour signs, and other traffic control devices. The contractor hopes to reopen the eastbound lane by Saturday, July 1st; the westbound lane will remain  closed until August.

Emergency vehicles will not be able to pass through this portion of Memorial Blvd. while the closure is in effect.

Please contact the City’s Department of Parks and Engineering at 301-739-8577 extension 125 if there are any questions regarding this advisory.
