Off-peak lane closures are coming to the intersection of Tilden Street, Park Road and Beach Drive NW on Monday, when the National Park Service plans to begin four to six weeks of underground construction.

The project will involve installing new underground drainage pipes and electrical lines below the intersection and then repaving the road. The intersection will remain open during the work, but flaggers will alternate traffic while construction is ongoing, according to a news release. The Park Service says that “no lane closures are anticipated during rush hours” but that drivers should expect delays on Tilden and Park at other times.

Beach Drive itself is closed from Tilden north to Joyce Road NW as part of its ongoing rehabilitation project.
