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.

Original post: Emergency repairs are underway on the outbound Frederick Douglass Bridge. District Department of Transportation contractors are performing the work and anticipate the right lane will be closed for about two to three hours, officials said.

Only so much longer they can keep putting duck tape on that bridge.
