Dear Community Members,
Large Equipment Delivery Notice from MedStar Georgetown University Hospital
MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is providing advanced notice of the delivery of several large pieces of equipment to the Medical/Surgical Pavilion construction site. There will be a total of 16 individual deliveries of large air handling equipment for the Pavilion. The first two deliveries will occur on Thursday, April 15 in the late afternoon. The majority of the remaining deliveries will occur on Saturday, April 17 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Remaining deliveries will be made in the late afternoons from Monday, April 19 to Wednesday, April 21 until all 16 deliveries are complete.
The DC Department of Transportation (DDOT) requires a permit for all overweight/oversized deliveries such as these. As outlined in the permit, the contractor is required to follow the trip route without deviation; the route is specifically prescribed by DDOT. Please be advised that the prescribed DDOT route is slightly different from the route outlined in the construction management plan.
Per the Maryland and District of Columbia Departments of Transportation, the equipment will travel from Maryland on Route 50 to New York Ave, then left on 6th Street NW and then right on Massachusetts Avenue NW. Then, trucks will proceed to New York Avenue NW to I Street NW and then on 16th Street NW. Finally, the trucks will turn on M Street NW and then on Wisconsin Ave NW, leading to Reservoir Road and ending at the Pavilion construction site.
DDOT and the Metropolitan Police Department both reserve the right to revoke this permit due to extenuating circumstances that may affect the safe delivery of the equipment, including inclement weather.
Thank you for your understanding and support during the construction of the Medical/Surgical Pavilion.
