DC To Repair Potholes on 14th Street Bridge
The contractor on the 14th Street Bridge rehab is going to work overnight on filling the annoying potholes that readers described today during our online discussion.
John Lisle, a spokesman for the District Department of Transportation, said he noticed the complaints coming in from drivers during the discussion, but he said a D.C. engineer already had experienced them first hand on the way in this morning.
Because of the pothole filling, there could be double lane closures on the northbound span between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m., then back to a single lane closure from 1 to 5 a.m., when all lanes will be open for rush hour.
Please continue telling me about your experiences on the 14th Street Bridge and the Chain Bridge, also the subject of a rehab project, and all the bridges in between, since we're expecting some spillover traffic. (Commenters today thought they saw an increase in traffic on the Key Bridge.)
This was one of the comments that came in during the online discussion.
Alexandria, Va,: The backup on the 14th Street Bridge this morning didn't seem to be due to the just underway construction project, but because of some truly massive potholes in the travel lanes. Is DDOT going to do repair work on these areas? I would hate to hit them at speed.
