18th St S Complete Streets Work Begins January 31

18th Street South Complete Street Project from South Fern Street to South Eads Street


Starting on Monday, January 31, Arlington County contractors will begin demolition work on the 18th St S median between South Fern Street and South Eads Street. The work will take place Monday through Friday, 7 A.M. to 3:30 P.M., and last through February 23. 


During work hours vehicle traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction, but will be fully available after work hours. Pedestrian access will be maintained, and street parking on 18th Street South will remain available, though limited.

This is the first part of the 18th Street South Complete Streets project to continue the existing South Hayes Street protected bike lane further east, helping to improve the bicycle network connection between the core of Pentagon City and Crystal City.
