ICC Construction: Upcoming Road Closures and Stoppages, This Weekend and April 21

From Odessa Phillips, about road closures and stoppages this weekend:

I want to notify you of work activity scheduled to occur this weekend and into next week near Georgia Avenue and Emory Lane. As you know, we have had a very rainy Spring thus far. The weather has impacted our ability to complete certain activities necessary to advance ICC construction.

This weekend, crews will be working to complete the paving activities on Emory Lane, adjacent to the ICC right-of-way. We expect work to begin at 7am on Saturday and 9am on Sunday. We have posted variable message signs along Emory Lane notifying travelers of the expected lane switch next Tuesday, April 21, 2009, weather permitting.

Additionally, many interested individuals may have noticed variable message signs along Georgia Avenue notifying travelers of a road closure to occur tomorrow. This activity has been postponed until next Tuesday, April 21, 2009, weather permitting. The ICC is doing utility work that requires road stoppages as a safety precaution. Crews will begin setting up the necessary equipment in the northbound direction as early as 7am Tuesday morning. Setup in the southbound direction will not begin until 10am, after the morning rush hour period. Subsequently, the actual roadway closure will not occur until after 10am. The road will be closed for a maximum anticipated period of 15 minutes while utility wires are passed over the travel lanes. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this work activity may cause.

If you would like to find out more about the ICC, please visit the project website It is my hope that you will share this information with your community members and advise them to contact me if they any comments, questions, or concerns about project activity. I can be reached at the Office of the Intercounty Connector, 301-354-8715 or by email at

Thank you for your patience as we continue construction of this important project.
