Northwest side of 16th Street Bridge

Construction of the 16th Street, NW, Bridge will require significant closures on 16th Street, NW, and Military Road, NW. Starting March 27 for up to four months, weather permitting, the bridge will be reduced to one lane in each direction, and eastbound and westbound Military Road, NW. One lane will be maintained in each direction on these two roadways, except for several weekends when there will be full closures of Military Road, NW, to replace the 16th Street, NW, Bridge.

DDOT will inform the public in advance of these closures. Residents and visitors are encouraged to use Georgia Avenue as an alternate route to bypass construction on 16th Street, NW. Additionally at this time, the 16th Street, NW, ramp to westbound Military Road, NW, will be closed. A detour will be posted. Drivers can expect turn restrictions at 16th Street ramp intersections; and they are urged to obey posted signs.
