Watch For Wilson Bridge Work
The new span on the Wilson Bridge is going through final testing and commissioning, which will require a few brief shutdowns in coming weeks. Project managers promise to give plenty of notice.
Some of the shutdowns will occur at off-peak times during the week, but most of the work is likely to occur on weekend days. The testing must be done with the benefit of daylight.
Even with a closing of no more than 20 minutes, the backups are likely to extend for about three miles. The closures will occur in only one direction each day and electronic signs will provide warning, project officials say.
This wrapup work on the first of the new Wilson spans is coming as the District prepares for a big new reconstruction project at the Frederick Douglass Bridge, which takes South Capitol Street over the Anacostia River.
