A section of 8th St NW between 21st Avenue NW and 27th Avenue NW is closed to thru traffic during a mill and overlay project.

A major street construction project is under way on 8th Street NW between 21st Avenue NW and 27th Avenue NW. The stretch of road is closed to thru traffic.

Residents of the neighborhoods west of 8th Street NW will be able to cross 8th Street NW at both 24th Avenue NW and 25th Avenue NW during the project, although there may be brief delays in entering or leaving those neighborhoods when large equipment is working in the intersection. During busy work periods, flaggers will be present to assist motorists in safely crossing 8th Street NW.

Milling of the roadway will begin Tuesday, July 28. Crews will overlay the roadway with new asphalt beginning late next week or early in the week of Aug. 10.

The project includes new concrete sidewalk and curb and gutter in multiple locations, including handicapped accessible curb at intersections. Most concrete work is expected to be complete this week.
