Weekend Work at Roosevelt Bridge
Lots to watch out for on the Roosevelt Bridge this weekend as part of the reconstruction work. The District Department of Transportation plans to close the ramp from the westbound bridge to Route 50 in Virginia) and the ramp from the westbound bridge to the northbound George Washington Parkway from 8 p.m. Friday until 4 p.m. on Sunday, weather permitting. Watch for detour signs.
DDOT says the $6.9 million project is on schedule for completion in December. Workers are placing a concrete deck overlay and repairing the Potomac River bridge. This includes repairs to the deck surface, replacement of the existing joint assemblies at the abutments and other upgrades, according to DDOT.
I drove across the bridge last week in both directions. Had to take it real easy on the westbound side, where a lot of the surface had been removed and, as a result, the metal joints were sticking way up. I was doing it at midday and it wasn't a big problem because the signs had warned me to expect the work.
But what's your experience, especially at rush hour?
