District Rebuilding Bridge Over NY Avenue

Bridge Detour.jpg

The District Department of Transportation will reconstruct the 9th Street Bridge over New York Avenue NE, starting this week. The project, which will continue until mid-2011, requires some detours for 9th Street traffic.

To start, DDOT will close the two southbound lanes on the bridge. To maintain two-way traffic, the two lanes that now handle northbound traffic will be split into one northbound lane and one southbound lane until the new bridge is done.

To accomplish the lane shift, DDOT will close access from Brentwood Parkway northbound to the bridge. The ramp from the southbound 9th Street Bridge to westbound New York Avenue also will be closed.

Detours: Southbound traffic on 9th Street can take Brentwood Parkway to Penn Street to reach New York Avenue. Northbound traffic on Brentwood Parkway can take Penn Street to eastbound New York Avenue, and then use the ramp to the northbound bridge.
