(Washington, DC)–As part of the 11th Street Bridge project, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will close the westbound I-695(Southeast/Southwest Freeway) exit ramp to M Street SE/Navy Yard from 7 am to 4 pm on Saturday, August 16, 2014. The closure will allow crews to continue demolition of the old 11th Street Inbound Flyover Bridge.  

To access M Street SE and the Navy Yard, motorists on both southbound DC-295 (Anacostia Freeway) and northbound I-295 (Anacostia Freeway) should follow the posted detour signs to the 11th Street Local Bridge, which will provide an alternate route to these destinations.

In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen conditions, this work will be rescheduled and an updated advisory will be distributed.
