Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge Diversions


Repairs on the structurally deficient Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge over Rock Creek Park are supposed to begin next summer. Officials are now considering changes to the traffic plan for the 15-month project.

Officials plan to limit the roadway to two lanes eastbound for eight months, diverting traffic to 26th and M Streets, NW. During the project, DDOT is considering making 26th Street one-way northbound to improve the flow of traffic while preserving a lane of parking. But some community members think it is important to retain both directions of travel. A decision is expected by the end of the month.
