The latest presentation slides from last week's 11th Street Bridges project's Community Communications Committee Meeting have been posted, and a few of them caught my eye (or bought my eye, for you fans of obscure Monty Python references). TheWashCycle recently posted a photo of the work underway on the overlooks that are now under construction just down-river of the new local bridge, using the old piers as their bases, and this is what they are expected to look like when completed (click to enlarge):
There is also a rendering (seen at right) of how the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail will run both under the bridges and down from O Street when finished; it also shows the small overlook that will be built out into the river just to the east of the entrance gate to the Navy Yard Promenade. WashCycle also got a recent photo of the path under construction, where you can see the outlines of what the rendering shows is coming.
The presentation slides also have some photos of the demolition underway on the old outbound freeway flyover, and aerial photos of the work that's completed and still underway on the east side of the river. There's also, on page 21, an image which looks like they've already almost completed the filling-in of the portion of the Southeast Freeway between 8th and 11th, since it shows dirt almost up to the underside of the existing bridge that takes 11th Street across the sunken freeway between I and L.
What all of this really means is that I need to get back to 11th Street with my camera pretty soon, since my last batch of photos is now a bit dated (waaah!).

So does that mean the 11th Street Recreation Bridge has gone from "a long shot" to "completely off the table?"



JD says: (3/19/13 5:23 PM)
No, it was always planned that these overlooks would be built. If the recreation bridge somehow comes to pass, the overlooks would be demolished.

new news - They've demolished the roadway lanes from half of 11th street by the flyovers - just the underlying steel is left.

Completion date?


JD says: (3/20/13 12:02 PM)
By summer, I believe.


MarkB says: (3/20/13 1:57 PM)
Hope this isn't too off topic, but have we seen what the plan is for the current 8th SE St off ramp? It looks as if it's ramp is the next to go...


JD says: (3/20/13 3:44 PM)
@MarkB, if you look at this link:

It *appears* that they are planning for a new on-ramp at 8th, a smidge to the west of the current one. (New one marked as E-2) It seems like they had to move it a bit so that ramp D-4 can come from the freeway down to 11th Street at the new Southeast Blvd. intersection.


MarkB says: (3/20/13 5:12 PM)
Ahhh!!! Looking forward to Phase 2! Thanks!

On the presentations 5th slide you can see a good shot or ramps C-1 and C-2. In the pictures it doesn't look like there is traffic on them but I didn't know if missed an announcement. I know they were scheduled to be done in late fall. Do you know if they are open?

Thank you! Loooove your site. I just registered an account but I have been reading your posts for well over a year.

I think the C1 and C2 ramps are opening soon--Dr. Gridlock mentioned them here: link It was the ramps to the 11th Street Local bridge from NB 295 and from the local bridge to SB 295 that opened last fall. I think C1 and C2 are the mirror images (to the local bridge from SB 295 and from the local bridge to NB 295).
