14th Street Bridge Timetable Pushed Back

Resurfacing work on the northbound stretch of the 14th Street Bridge will begin "on or about" the night of Tuesday, May 26, instead of May 18, D.C. officials said today. Planners apparently decided motorists would be more amenable to the disruption after the Memorial Day weekend.

The speed limit on northbound I-395 approaching the bridge will be reduced to 35 mph from 55 mph.

You can see the complete pattern of lane closures on our Commuter page map, along with tips on how to avoid delays. In coming weeks, look to Get There and Dr. Gridlock's Twitter feed for updates on the project and the likely delays.
