Opening of New Ramp to Outbound 11th Street Freeway Bridge
DDOT to Implement New Traffic Pattern from M Street/Navy Yard Area to Southbound I-295
A newly constructed ramp will open at the intersection of 11th Street and M Street, SE to traffic on or about Friday, May 18.
(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will open the newly constructed ramp at the intersection of 11th Street and M Street, SE to traffic on or about Friday, May 18. The new ramp will provide access from the M Street/Navy Yard area to the new outbound 11th Street Freeway Bridge and southbound I-295.
Access to Historic Anacostia will remain on the old outbound 11th Street Bridge, until the new local bridge opens in the coming days. Existing inbound traffic movements from northbound I-295 to the M Street/ Navy Yard area will also remain the same.
New Traffic Pattern
- Outbound traffic to southbound I-295 will be rerouted onto the newly constructed ramp at 11th Street and M Street, SE to access I-295 southbound via the outbound 11th Street Freeway Bridge (I-695 EB).
- Outbound traffic to Historic Anacostia will continue to use the existing outbound 11th Street bridge.
Electronic message signs will be in place to provide motorists advanced notice of the new traffic pattern.
In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions, this work will be rescheduled and an updated advisory will be distributed.
