Construction Site

Saturday Work

Greetings Neighbors.

Saturday Work
As part of construction associated with the Northeast Boundary Tunnel Project (NEBT) (, DC Water’s contractor will be conducting Saturday work on March 28, 2020 at the Florida Avenue NW Construction Site.  Workers will be mixing grout into the muck pit to firm up and dry out the spoils. (A muck pit holds the spoils of excavated earth from the drop shaft. These spoils are often watery and need to be dried out prior to off-site disposal). There may be some limited noise associated with the mixing activity. The work will be contained within the site and construction will not cause any additional traffic or pedestrian impacts. There will be no hauling from the site during this Saturday work.

Saturday work at the Florida Avenue site is scheduled to take place between 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. People who live or work near the site will notice some noise associated with construction activities.Thank you for your patience.

Project Details
The Northeast Boundary Tunnel is the largest component of the Clean Rivers Project. It begins south of RFK Stadium and will extend north to Rhode Island Avenue, NE and west to 6th Street NW. When finished, the approximately five-mile long tunnel segment will complete the Anacostia River Tunnel, a 13.1-mile-long tunnel that ends at the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. This project will significantly reduce chronic flooding in the areas it serves, as well as reduce the amount of combined sewer overflows into the Anacostia River.
