Clarendon Circle Repaving Final Phase Begins

Clarendon Circle Repaving Final Phase to End Soon

Repaving will continue for the week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is expected to complete by Monday, Nov 11.

There will be lane closures and temporary detours. Traffic will move slower. Almost all street parking is blocked off. Avoid the area if possible.

The redesign realigns Wilson and Washington Blvds, shortens crosswalks, and widens sidewalks. Access to N. Irving Street is now blocked. Left turns onto Wilson from Washington Blvd is now prohibited. Hopefully this will result in less confusion for motorists and improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
