The project is replacing two bridges built in the 1960s with three new bridges that separate local and freeway traffic. The project is critical to improving travel and achieving the larger vision of the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative.

The new freeway bridges also provide direct connections between the Southeast-Southwest Freeway and both directions of Interstate/DC-295, fixing a long-standing deficiency that forced motorists to use local streets to connect to and from both freeways. - See more at: http://www.anacostiawaterfront.org/awi-transportation-projects/11th-street-bridge/#sthash.v4LlGvDh.dpuf

The new freeway bridges will also provide direct connections between the Southeast-Southwest Freeway and both directions of Interstate/DC-295, fixing a long-standing deficiency that forced motorists to use local streets to connect to and from both freeways. Other benefits of the project include a new bicycle and pedestrian path that connects with the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, environmental investments to treat storm water runoff, an additional emergency evacuation route, new street connections between 11st Street and Pennsylvania Ave, SE, and connections to the future DC streetcar network.
