The Post reports today that the new Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge is at the midway point in its construction, with construction of the bridge itself and the two new traffic oval approaches still expected to be completed in 2021. The work on the new bridge is also now at a point where photographs actually show something resembling the final product, so I can now finally start feeling like I'm not completely ignoring it.
The most obvious progress is on the form work for the bases of the bridge's arches, as you can see in a photograph taken on Sunday alongside a, um, tweaked graphic to help non-bridge-o-philes understand what they are seeing:
I also ventured up onto the existing bridge to get a closer look:
If you haven't been paying attention to the plans for the new bridge, you can check out my project page for lots of renderings of the bridge, the wide side paths, and the plans for the ovals. Also, the official web site for the project also has lots of information, and is pretty active on social media, posting the sort of pictures that bloggers who don't have sea-level access can't get.

Modern Marvels!

This looks great. I won't have to ride my bike on that skinny sidewalk on the current bridge anymore.

Breaking news: Erik Bruner-Yang (multi-James Beard nominee) is going to open a 3,000-sq-ft "day to night neighborhood cafe" at Novel. It will include breakfast-oriented offerings, evening snacks, and craft cocktails, and is expected to open "at the end of summer 2019."

WaPo blurb says the bridge "is set to open next year". Oops.

That's huge news, and very welcome (i.e. not a CVS). Based on that description, I have a lot of questions - is actual food being served during the day and into the evening? For someone so illustrious, I am expecting quite a 'cafe'.

Here's the Washingtonian piece about it, with a smidge more detail: link

@jdc The food at the other restaurants owned/operated by EBY is top notch, but with prices to match. I'm sure they will have food, he is quite the foodie.

More on Bruner-Yang's cafe link


JES says: (5/21/19 10:11 AM)
Justin's replacement is official: link

In an email to the Velocity listserv today, our GM told us that they'll be renovating over the course of the next 8 weeks, eying a July opening, which is quite the aggressive timeline. As JD says... "we shall see."
