Progress on Several Roadways

Several road improvement projects are being completed this month, one in the area of the Wilson Bridge project and the other in the District:

-- The Wilson Bridge Project reports that South Washington Street will permanently return to four traffic lanes from South Street through the Washington Street Beltway overpass as early as Monday. This should improve travel for commuters who have seen the construction work in the area for three years.

South Washington Street has been reduced from four to three travel lanes to accommodate construction of a new Beltway overpass. Now that work on the overpass is in its final phase, the long term lane restrictions are no longer necessary, project officials say. The new deck for the overpass should be done by mid-2007.

-- The District Department of Transportation announced the completion of the Southern Avenue Bridge at Naylor Road , running over Suitland Parkway. The $8.9 million project began in 2004 and work included replacement of the old Southern Avenue Bridge, DDOT said.

"Two years later, we have a new bridge that includes significant streetlight upgrades with a modern design and new landscaping being installed around the bridge in the coming weeks," Michelle L. Pourciau, DDOT's acting director, said in a statement.
