Beginning on or about January 8th, work crews from Northern Pipe Line and Columbia Gas will be replacing gas mains and services in Cannon Avenue. In order to give the contractor sufficient space to perform their work, northbound Cannon Avenue will be closed to traffic between Antietam Street and Washington Street; southbound traffic will still be able to drive through this block. A detour route will be established to direct northbound traffic around the closure. Motorists approaching the closure will encounter cones, barricades, detour signs, and other traffic control devices. It is anticipated that this closure will repeated on each weekday, 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM until mid-February; the actual schedule will depend upon conditions that the contractor encounters during the work.
Emergency vehicles will be able to respond to incidents in this block of Cannon Avenue, but northbound emergency vehicles will not be able to pass through this area while the closure is in effect.
Please contact the City’s Department of Parks & Engineering at 301-739-8577 extension 125 with any questions regarding this advisory.
