Emergency repairs on Douglass Bridge
1:55 p.m. Update: Delays on South Capitol Street soutbound extend to M Street. Traffic is moving but sluggish.
11:45 a.m. Update: The repairs on the bridge are part of an overall repair project DDOT launched in May along with weight restrictions on the bridge, according to spokesman John Lisle. A March 2010 inspection discovered that pin and hanger assemblies on the bridge, which connect girders, and the bridge joints required repairs, he said.
