14th Street Bridge Traffic Pattern Update
Three, Not Two, Lanes Continue On I-395N
- The new traffic pattern on the northbound 14th Street Bridge caused confusion this morning.
The new traffic pattern on the northbound 14th Street Bridge caused confusion this morning, as some drivers did not understand that three lanes continue onto I-395 North.
Drivers may use one lane to the left of the center barrier, as well as two lanes to the right of the barrier. Please see graphic below:
Changes to signs onsite are being made by DDOT in conjunction with the contractor. A new sign, expected to be in place by this evening, will inform drivers they may stay to the left of the barrier and still access I-395 North. DDOT officials will continue to monitor traffic conditions and make additional changes as needed.
