WASHINGTON, DC — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to close the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge (South Capitol Street Bridge) for routine testing, from 4 am to 9 am on Sunday, May 19, 2013.
During normal opening and closing operations, the swing span is lowered and then turned or “swung” around in order to allow water traffic to pass. Crews test the swing span to ensure it operates properly and make any necessary repairs.
The bridge will be reopened to traffic as soon as the test opening and related repairs are completed.
