About the 11th Street Bridge Project: Projected to serve almost 180,000 vehicles per day by 2030, the existing bridges lack connections to allow travel directly from southbound DC 295/Anacostia Freeway to the Southeast-Southwest Freeway or from the Southeast-Southwest Freeway to northbound DC 295. The two new freeway bridges will provide these connections. The third bridge will carry local traffic between city streets on both sides of the river and provide additional connections to both directions of DC 295. The project is the largest ever constructed by DDOT and is the first river bridge replacement in the District in more than 40 years. To learn more about the 11th Street Bridge Project, visit ddot.dc.gov/11thStreetBridge.
