Opening of New Local Bridge and Closure of 13th Street Ramp

 

From John Lisle: The 11th Street Bridge Project is entering a major phase of construction that will complete and open new ramps and bridges over the next several weeks.  These changes will affect traffic patterns for local traffic crossing the Anacostia River. 

 

 

On the morning of Thursday, May 24, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to partially open the new 11th Street Local Bridge between Historic Anacostia and the Capitol Hill/Navy Yard area.  The new 11th Street corridor will accommodate two-way local traffic and pedestrians across the river and provide a direct connection to the Washington Navy Yard at O Street, SE.

 

In the local bridge’s interim condition, there will be 2 lanes for inbound traffic and 1 lane for outbound traffic towards Anacostia. There will also be a temporary 6-foot separated walkway for pedestrians and cyclists. (The local bridge is scheduled to be completed this fall with 4 travel lanes and a permanent shared pedestrian/bicycle path).

 

On the same day, the existing 13th Street ramp, which currently provides access from Good Hope Road to the inbound 11th Street Freeway Bridge (I-695 WB), will close permanently.  All inbound traffic from Anacostia will be directed to the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Good Hope Road, SE where motorists will access the new inbound 11th Street corridor.
