The project to repave the Clara Parton Parkway, which began this summer, is now reaching Cabin John.
According to a press release from the National Park Service, pavement repairs at the Clara Barton Parkway interchange in Cabin John are underway mid-October. They will start on the Eastbound ramp, which is planned to be closed nightly from 7:00 pm to 6:15 am until Oct. 24. The Westbound ramp will then close beginning Oct. 25 through Nov. 2 — during this time the Westbound ramp will be closed day and night, and drivers will need to detour.
The park service will then be making safety updates to the Cabin John Access Road, including updated striping and signage for two turning lanes onto MacArthur Blvd., and bolder Don’t Block The Box (DBTB) pavement striping and stop bars at Ericsson Rd.
This phase of the work will close the Cabin John Access Road from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm:
- Nov. 3 to Nov. 6 at Ericsson Rd.
- Nov. 7 and Nov. 8 (northbound)
- Nov. 9 and Nov. 10 (southbound)
NPS will post detours, and flaggers will be present to during the day to direct traffic.
