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.
