 Sliding from Before to After

From DDOT, news of another milestone in the 11th Street Bridges reconstruction project:
"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."
So, don't drive down 11th Street south of M anymore if you're wanting to get to I-295 southbound, because that old ramp at N Street will now only take you via the old bridge directly into Anacostia on Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.
Will be interesting to see how this works, and of course it will be equally interesting to see the new 11th Street Local bridge in action, "in the coming days." UPDATE, 5/18: Dr. Gridlock says today on his blog that the 11th Street Local bridge will be opening on Wednesday (May 23).

I rode by the local bridge on two different days recently and it looks like the fake brick (red patterened concrete) that was used for the crosswalks was not fairing well. I've seen at least two rip-ups and repours, and the surface of the concrete "bricks" looked cracked open in a lot of spots. I originally heard the local bridge would open May 16th, so I wonder if this is what is holding it up.

I'm sure they are saving the best for last, the direct connection from our neighborhood to 295 North without doing the Pennsylvania Avenue shuffle!

Are they going to be adding northbound entrances onto DC-295 as part of this project?


JD says: (5/19/12 6:09 PM)
There's going to be a new ramp from the outbound 11th Street Freeway bridge to DC-295 northbound. You can see it under construction now as you drive outbound on the freeway bridge--its exit lanes are already in place at the right side of the bridge, but blocked off.
