(Washington, DC) As part of the 11th Street Bridge Project, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will close one lane in each direction on the Anacostia Freeway (DC 295/I-295), during off-peak hours, from Monday, January 25 through Friday, February 12.
The closures will occur between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm daily, and again from 7:30 pm to 5:30 am each night, between Pennsylvania Avenue and Howard Road.
During these lane closures, contractors will prepare to demolish a pedestrian bridge that crosses above the highway. The pedestrian bridge must be removed to allow for the construction of ramps for the new 11th Street bridges. A new pedestrian bridge is to be built and open to pedestrians in the same location by Memorial Day Weekend 2010.
