Closures of C Street SW and Washington Avenue SW Ramps to Southbound I-295

Washignton, DC - As part of the 11th Street Bridge Project, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will close the southbound 3rd Street Tunnel (I-395) exit ramp to southbound I-295 from 7 a.m. on Saturday, June 7 to 10 p.m. on Sunday, June 8, 2014. 

The C Street SW and Washington Avenue SW access ramps to southbound I-295 will also be closed during this period as well.  All of these closures are needed to allow crews to install new overhead sign panels over the roadway.

• Traffic will be detoured via southbound I-395 to 7th Street SW and northbound I-395 (Southeast/Southwest Freeway) to access South Capitol Street and I-295.
• Motorists traveling on C Street SW and Washington Avenue SW will be detoured to D Street SW to southbound I-395 to follow the posted detour route to 7th Street SW toward northbound I-395 to access South Capitol Street and I-295.

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