WASHINGTON, DC — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will hold an informational meeting on Tuesday, July 30 to update the public about the design, phasing and schedule of the largest project in its history—the South Capitol Street Corridor Project—which includes replacing the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge and transforming the city’s southernmost entrance into a grand urban boulevard.
To manage the $908 million cost and minimize construction impacts, DDOT divided the project into five segments to be constructed in two phases. In June 2013, the agency issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to contractors for design-build construction of Phase 1, which is estimated to cost a total of $600 million and includes:
- Segment 1: Replacing the Douglass Bridge and constructing traffic ovals on either end and
- Segment 2: Reconstructing the Suitland Parkway/Interstate-295 Interchange.
Phase 2, anticipated to cost an additional total of $300 million and be advanced in future years, includes:
- Segment 3: Constructing a new Suitland Parkway/Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE Interchange,
- Segment 4: Reconstructing South Capitol Street into a grand urban boulevard south of Independence Avenue SE/SW with a new at-grade intersection at M Street SE, and
- Segment 5: Improving the New Jersey Avenue SE streetscape.

The South Capitol Street Corridor is one in a series of transportation, environmental, economic, community and recreation projects included in the District’s larger Anacostia Waterfront Initiative (AWI). From the Tidal Basin to the city’s northeast border with Maryland, the 30-year, $10 billion AWI is transforming the shores of the Anacostia River into a world-class waterfront.
