Evening Road Work Begins on GW, Clara Barton Parkways

Drivers who frequent the George Washington Memorial and Clara Barton parkways may run into nightly traffic delays as crews repair potholes.

Starting Tuesday night, targeted repaving work will involve single-lane closures for several weeks from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Crews will work on the GW Parkway between Chain Bridge Road and the Beltway and on the Clara Barton Parkway between Chain Bridge Rd. and McArthur Boulevard.

The NPS says crews will remove more than 76,000 square yards of the roads’ surface, place more than 7,000 tons of new asphalt, level uneven parts of the road and install new pavement markings.

“We’re working this fall so the parkways are ready for winter driving,” Superintendent Charles Cuvelier said in the release. “Even though this work won’t address the entirety of either road, it’s part of the National Park Service’s long-term plan to maintain and eventually reconstruct both the George Washington Memorial and Clara Barton parkways.”
