Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

I've had some e-mails of late from readers eyeing the progress on the new outbound flyover from the eastbound Southeast Freeway toward the 11th Street freeway bridge (aka I-695). The flyover appears to be pretty close to opening, but as of now there's no official date-in-stone from the project folks.
However, they were nice enough to pass along this graphic showing the estimated dates that four of the ramps now under construction will open. And, because I know some of you just can't bring yourselves to click, I'll summarize:
* The new eastbound/outbound flyover from the freeway is expected to open sometime in the next six weeks or so.
* A third lane westbound/inbound is scheduled to open in the March/April timeframe.
* The new/replacement ramp from 8th Street onto the eastbound/outbound freeway has an "early spring" anticipated opening date.
* The ramp that will offer a new exit from the eastbound freeway directly onto to 11th Street just north of L is expected to open this summer.
And, while I invite you to check out my 11th Street Bridges project page for the background on this on-going project, I admit that I haven't been over there to take pictures since, ahem, October (it's cold! I'm busy! I'm tired! I'm lazy!). But now I will probably be guilted into it.

Thanks for sharing the latest projections on the 11th Street Bridge openings, JD. The construction timeline is helpful, especially for those of us who live (cough, cough) within of the bridge. A few thoughts:

* I noticed that the new streetlamps over the I-695 eastbound (Anacostia-bound) lanes are LED-powered, but the other lamps are not. Any word on whether DDOT or the contractor is undergoing some pilot project?

* Non-dog-park "dog park" fans should also be interested to see the project end -- it's reasonable to believe that the non-dog-park could expand all the way to 11th Street. So far, neither DPR or the Park Service (which owns the land under Virginia Avenue Park) have said much about the boundaries of the park, but it could happen...

* Once the Virginia Avenue Tunnel project gets sorted out. (See, it also goes back to the tunnel!) The draft tunnel EIS mentions that CSX will make improvements to the park once construction is over. Could that include fencing and a total overhaul of the field and non-dog-park? Maybe.

JD, thanks for finding and posting this.

I also am wondering about how this project will fit in the CSX project. It seems like it will provide some help that is not accounted for in the CSX project descriptions.

For example, there is a new ramp (D4 on your graphic) that connects EB SE expressway to 11th Street, that was never there before. This should relieve some of the traffic coming off of the 6th St exit that will be diverted north onto 6th and into the neighborhood, due to the CSX project taking over Virginia Avenue.

OTOH, one big shortcoming is that drivers heading from MLK & Good Hope in Anacostia have no direct access to the expressway, like they did before this thing got underway. What they must do now is move through traffic across the local 11th St bridge, past 3-4 stop lights, and get on at the new ramp near 11th & K St (ramp G3 on the graphic). This is far more difficult than before.

I'll admit I'm easily impressed but it's still kind of neat to see *Capitol Hill* as an exit sign from 295.


Gamble Rogers says: (1/16/14 2:41 PM)
E. Masquinongy: Your observations about the highly increased traffic on 11th Street are spot-on. The project website says one of the bridge project's goals is to "relieve local streets of interstate traffic." Now, northbound traffic backs up across the local 11th Street bridge from Anacostia, completely jamming up 11th Street northbound to access the new I-695 westbound ramp next to Gingko Gardens.

After seeing the traffic get worse, my thought is, "Did the new design in Anacostia not funnel local cars onto the new I-695 ramps? Or do folks not want to use those ramps?" Either way, it does not seem like an improvement for folks commuting into town from Anacostia.

I can't find a total project map on the 11th Street Bridge website. Wonder what gives?
