Douglass Bridge opening to cause delays

The District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) plans to open the swing span of the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge (aka the South Capitol Street Bridge) at about 11a.m. Tuesday, to make way for a barge.

In a statement , the agency said the swing span is expected to be open for just a few minutes and will close again as soon as the barge clears the bridge.

DDOT suggest motorists can use the 11th Street, Sousa (Pennsylvania Avenue) and Whitney Young Memorial (East Capitol Street) bridges as alternate routes.
