According to a reader named Terrence, construction of residential hi-rises on the opposite sides of the street are both attempting to close sidewalks on the 400 block of New York Ave. The projects are Yale West on the north side of the street and the Meridian at Mount Vernon Triangle on the south side.
At the corner of 4th Street & New York Ave NW on the north side of the intersection you are instructed the sidewalk is closed ahead and you should cross the street. Once you cross to the South you encounter a similar sign that a sidewalk closure is ahead and instructs you to cross back to the other side of the street.
4th and NY Ave NW. On NW corner looking west.

Seems like the setup for a Monty Python sketch…
