On Saturday Dec. 11, the Wharf’s Phase 2 Project will require a temporary closure of Eastbound Maine Avenue from Seventh Street to near Sixth Street SW.  Water Street access to Maine Avenue SW will remain open.

This is for a large delivery requiring the use of a crane and will necessitate the closure of both Eastbound lanes of Maine Avenue SW.  The work will be performed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Traffic will be detoured in the Eastbound direction at Sevent Street to I Street, and then back to Sevent Street where traffic can turn left to continue traveling East. There will be signage, barricades and flaggers to assist.  Traffic going Westbound on Maine Avenue will not be affected.

Traffic headed South on Seventh Street SW will be advised as follows:

  • Eastbound Maine Avenue SW traffic must turn left at I Street.
  • Traffic accessing The Wharf via Seventh Street will continue straight.
  • Traffic traveling West on Maine will turn onto Westbound Maine Avenue.
