Looking westward at the bridges construction. On the left is the new 11th Street Local bridge, which when it opens in the fall of 2012 will move two-way traffic between old town Anacostia and 11th Street SE next to the Navy Yard. To the right are the two new freeway bridges, inbound and outbound, which will connect the Southeast Freeway to DC 295, and which are expected to open by the end of 2011. In the middle is the new ramp that will take traffic from the outbound bridge toward northbound DC 295, a connection that doesn't exist with the current bridge configuration.
