The bodies of two men were found about 50 feet apart on either side of Interstate 295 in Southeast Wednesday, D.C. police said.

There is no word on a suspected cause of death of either of the men at this time, but there is no sign of foul play, and police said they believe the men were homeless, News4's Pat Collins reported..

Police say they're conducting separate death investigations.

They're looking into the possibility of hypothermia. D.C. issued a hypothermia alert overnight as temperatures plummeted from about 70 degrees to below freezing.

The westbound Pennsylvania Avenue ramp from northbound I-295 and the westbound Pennsylvania Avenue ramp onto southbound I-295 were shut down but reopened after 1 p.m., according to authorities.
