by Larry Janezich
Last Wednesday, Peter McDonough, 11th Street Bridge Project Manager, briefed ANC6B’s Transportation Subcommittee on the status of the project. According to McDonough, the project is five months ahead of schedule. This means that there will be four significant changes in Capitol Hill traffic patterns beginning next week through mid-September.
Mid May: A new M Street SE Outbound Ramp to I-295 Southbound will open.
Late May: Access opens for Inbound traffic across the 11th Street Bridge onto the Southwest Freeway Southbound.
Late June: New DC-295 Southbound to the Southwest Freeway Inbound will open.
Mid September: New Southwest Freeway Outbound Ramp to DC-295 Northbound will open.
