Street Repairs

After hosting more than 10 million visitors at The Wharf, we are asking for your patience as we prepare to do some grouting and beautification maintenance on our cobblestone streets. The streets will remain open to pedestrians at all times. And streets will only close to vehicular traffic in sections for two weeks at a time.

  • Sept 10–24: District Square, 800 Wharf Street block
  • Sept 17–Oct 1: 900 and 1000 Wharf Street blocks, Blair Alley
  • Sept 24–Oct 8: Sutton Square (between Water Street and Wharf Street, in front of the InterContinental Hotel)
  • Oct 1–Nov 1: Sutton Square (between Maine Avenue and Wharf Street), part of 800 Water Street block
  • Oct 17–22: Pearl Street (between Maine Avenue and Water Street), Wharf Street (between 7th Street Park and Pearl Street), part of 700 Water Street block
  • Oct 22–29: 700 Water Street block (residential loading dock), Pearl Street (between Water Street and Wharf Street)
  • Oct 22–Nov 12: Wharf Street (between 7th Street Park and Sutton Square)
  • TBD: Water Street (between garage entrance and Pearl Street)
  • TBD: 700 Water Street block (between hotel garage entrance and 7th Street Park)

Please note that two of the three garage entrances will remain open at all times. We look forward to completing all work in time for our largest event of the year, the District Holiday Boat Parade!
