4th at Water St., Looking East (see more)

UPDATE, Dec. 19: A tweet from DDOT confirms that the new ramp is "slated to open this afternoon, possibly in time for evening rush hour." UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: According to NBC4's Adam Tuss, the ramp is now open.
Original post: Just out from DDOT, an announcement that the long-awaited ramp from the outbound 11th Street freeway bridges (now known as I-695) to DC-295 northbound is expected to open "on or about December 19." This means that vehicles traveling eastbound on the southeast freeway can now remain on the freeway for their entire trip to DC-295 northbound, instead continuing along the stub of the Southeast Freeway ending at Barney Circle, then traveling across the Sousa Bridge to then endure a nightmare left turn onto DC-295.
Not mentioned in the announcement is whether at the same time the old route to Pennsylvania Avenue will be closed--if it doesn't close the 19th (see Update II below), it will be closing soon, as part of the two-year reconfiguration of that road as "Southeast Boulevard."
{I'm psychic!}
UPDATE: I should also note that, according to the graphic at right, eastbound freeway traffic will start being routed (temporarily!) on the new flyover built during the past few years that will eventually carry inbound traffic; but using it for outbound traffic at this point allows the existing older outbound flyover to be demolished to make way for a new outbound flyover. Photos and additional explanations here and here.
UPDATE II: However, if you're used to getting onto the eastbound freeway and 11th Street Bridges via the ramp at 8th and Virginia, be advised that ramp will close when demolition begins of the old outbound flyover, which is expected to start in late January. And, to answer another lingering question from this post, that's when the eastbound freeway east of 8th will be closed, which also means that the little ramp from 9th and Virginia to the eastbound freeway stub will be closed as well. (This all from @DDOTDC on Twitter.) You'll be able to access the new ramp to DC-295 northbound by getting on eastbound I-695 via the new-ish ramp on the southeast corner of 11th and M; in fact, the entrance lane from that ramp I believe puts you directly in the DC-295 NB exit lane. Or, if you're on the western end of the neighborhood, you can get on the eastbound freeway at South Capitol Street (only in my fever dreams).

Yay, an actual complete interchange on DC-295!


KLB says: (12/14/12 12:24 PM)
Will Update 1 also occur on our about 12/19? It seems like they still have some work to do on the new flyover, and getting access to the flyover as there are barriers up now.


JD says: (12/14/12 12:28 PM)
I don't have confirmation, but if they're not closing the eastbound freeway stub until January, I think they might not move onto the new flyover until then. But the map they released shows that as the new traffic flow, so we'll just have to see.


Maelstrom says: (12/14/12 5:34 PM)
Actually, the new flyover looks translucent to me in the traffic flow picture. I don't think the flyover is part of the 12/19 thing at all. It looks to me like the south/east pointing arrows are on the old flyover still. The tan road near the top of the freeway is the new entrance ramp, not the flyover.

I still like seeing an exit for = *Capitol Hill* on 295. (-:
