(Washington, DC) Starting tonight the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will be conducting overnight single lane closures on M Street between 11th and 12th Streets in southeast Washington. The closures will occur from 10 pm to 5 am the following morning through Friday, February 3. During this time, the exit ramp on the northbound 11th Street Bridge to M Street, SE and the Navy Yard will be closed. The closures will allow DDOT to perform work over M Street, SE for a new freeway bridge.
During the lane closures eastbound and westbound access on M Street, SE will be kept open. While the ramp is closed signed detours will be posted.
Motorists traveling on the northbound 11th Street Bridge seeking access to M Street, SE will be detoured to the 8th Street, SE exit, onto I Street, SE and then onto 8th Street, SE.
Variable Message Signs (VMS) will be in place to provide motorists advanced notice of the scheduled detour.
In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions this work will be rescheduled.
This closure is in addition to the previously publicized off-peak closures of the 11th Street bridges, related ramps, local streets, and I-295/DC 295.
