(Washington, DC) The District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) will close the access from the 11th Street outbound bridge to Good Hope Road from Sunday, August 28 at 8 pm to Monday, August 29 at 7 am to allow for temporary pavement construction, weather permitting. In the event of adverse weather conditions DDOT will execute this change on August 30, 2011 through August 31, 2011.
The left two lanes of the outbound 11th Street bridge will also be closed. The intersection of Good Hope Road and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue will remain open at all times.
During the closure, a signed detour will be posted for motorists wanting to access Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Good Hope Road.
To reach Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue and Good Hope Road, motorists will be directed to travel along southbound I-295/DC 295 to Howard Road. Once at Howard Road, motorists will be directed to turn left to access Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue. During the time of this closure, persons wanting to access Anacostia Park should access the park via Howard Road.
Once this work is complete, traffic traveling to Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue will be rerouted onto the new 11th Street bridge over I-295/DC 295 and then onto the existing Good Hope Road ramp. This detour route to Good Hope Road will allow for the construction and widening of 11th Street between the Good Hope Road ramp and the Martin Luther King, Jr. /Good Hope Road intersection. This detour route to Good Hope Road will be in place through 2011. Motorists are urged to consider alternative routes.
In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions, this work will be rescheduled and an updated advisory will be distributed.
This closure is in addition to the previously publicized off-peak closures of the 11th Street bridges, related ramps, local streets, Southeast-Southwest Freeway and Interstate 295/DC 295.
