All work is scheduled for completion by mid-September, weather permitting.

During this closure, local access will be maintained for residents of Hankins Road within the construction zone as well as for side streets, including Crossings Boulevard and Roden Park Drive.

Residents of these subdivisions, however, are advised to utilize alternate access into and out their subdivisions in order to minimize as much as possible the amount of traffic within the Hankins Road construction zone.

Detours will be posted.


The intersection of Eaton Avenue and N.W. Washington Boulevard will be subject to lane restrictions on Monday, August 7, starting at 8 p.m. and ending at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The work, weather permitting, will be for final asphalt restoration, according to the city.

“No Parking” signs and detours will be posted.
