ABOUT THE BRIDGE
The Anacostia Freeway Bridges (Interstate 295), originally constructed in 1963, consists of two spans crossing over South Capitol Street SE. Each bridge carries two lanes of traffic: two lanes of one-way northbound and two lanes of one-way southbound traffic.
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is undertaking this bridge
project as part of its ongoing commitment to safety. The Anacostia Freeway
Bridges over South Capitol Street SE will be rehabilitated to
address deterioration and prolong bridge life.
Project Start: January 2019
Project End: November 2019
The Rehabilitation of Anacostia Freeway Bridges Over South Capitol Street project is committed to providing a website that offers accessibility to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We strive to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. While we aim to ensure that the website meets all the guidelines and standards for accessibility, we know that there are still some areas that could use improvement. Due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will make the site more user friendly and bring each section up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
