Douglass Bridge reopens
11:30 A.M. UPDATE: DDOT reports that the bridge has reopened to traffic.
Original post: The Frederick Douglass Bridge, which takes South Capitol Street traffic over the Anacostia River, scheduled closed about 10 a.m. Thursday and is expected to remain shut down for about two hours. This is a major route in and out of central Washington, so traffic delays are very likely. The alternative Anacostia River routes are the 11th Street, Sousa (Pennsylvania Avenue) and Whitney Young (East Capitol Street) bridges.
The traffic closure was requested by the Coast Guard. During the two hours, the District Department of Transportation will open the bridge's swing span for a vessel.
