3rd at L, Looking West-Southwest (see more)

A release just out from DDOT is announcing that the new ramp from 11th Street SE to the westbound Southeast/Southwest Freeway wll be opening on Thursday, Nov. 29. This means that vehicles from the eastern ends of Capitol Hill and Near Southeast won't have to drive along Virginia Avenue to the 3rd Street SE on-ramp anymore; it will also give easier westbound freeway access to traffic coming inbound on the 11th Street Local Bridge.
Also on Nov. 29, the westbound portion of the sunken SE Freeway between Pennsylvania Avenue/Barney Circle and 8th Street SE will be fully closed, as work continues on creating the new "Southeast Blvd." Drivers heading south on DC-295 who have long exited onto Pennsylvania to go west on the SE/SW Freeway will be directed to use the inbound 11th Street Freeway Bridge.
I wrote a lot about these changes back in September, so I'll just point you to those three posts for additional information and photos, or you can wander through my 11th Street Bridges project page.

I know that personally I am really looking forward to this 11th Street ramp for all those times I go to the Exxon at 12th and Penn before setting off on some drive that almost always puts me on the freeway. Very nice to not have to schlep back across the Hill to 3rd Street.

Very happy to see this finally open!

Any news on when the 11h street ramp to 295 North will open?

Sounds like it should be open by the end of the year.
