Temporary Ramp Closure on Chesapeake Street SW to I-295 Northbound August 11

(Washington, DC) - The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to close the Chesapeake Street SW on-ramp to I-295 Northbound on Saturday August 11, weather permitting.

The ramp closure and detour will be in place from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 11 and is necessary for construction work which includes milling and paving. 

A marked detour will guide motorists southbound on Overlook Avenue SW for a half mile to the next intersection at Shepherd Parkway/US Naval Research Laboratory.  All detoured traffic will then make a left at the traffic signal and proceed to use the on-ramp heading northbound on I-295. 

Traffic controls will be in place to warn drivers approaching the area. Motorists should follow marked detour and are advised to stay alert while traveling through this location.


The mission of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is to enhance the quality of life for District residents and visitors by ensuring that people, goods, and information move efficiently and safely with minimal adverse impact on residents and the environment.
