DDOT to Replace an Overhead Sign Panel Over the Southbound DC 295 (Anacostia Freeway) Flyover Bridge

(Washington, D.C.) Starting tonight at midnight through 5 a.m. tomorrow motorists will encounter intermittent 20-minute traffic stoppages on southbound DC 295 between Howard Road, SE and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.  Prior to this motorists will encounter a left lane closure on southbound DC 295 along this stretch.  The lane closure and intermittent traffic stoppages will allow DDOT to replace an overhead sign panel at the southbound DC-295 (Anacostia Freeway) flyover bridge.  

Electronic signs will be in place to provide motorists advanced notice of the scheduled lane closure and intermittent stoppages.

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 I-295/DC 295.

For more information about this work or the 11th Street Bridge Project, please contact DDOT Deputy Chief Engineer Ravindra Ganvir at 202-671-4689 or visit
