    Part of M Street to Be Closed Sunday
    The new 11th Street Bridge during the latest phase of construction last fall.

    The ongoing 11th Street Bridge project will force the closure of part of M Street during the day Sunday.

    M Street, Southeast will be closed between 11th and 12th Streets. The inbound Interstate 695 Freeway Bridge exit ramp to M Street, Southeast will also be closed, as will the northbound lanes of the 11th Street Local Bridge between Good Hope Road, Southeast and O Street, Southeast.

    DDOT says that the closures are required so that crews can continue the demolition of the old outbound freeway bridge, which passes over M Street, Southeast.

    As a result of the closure, traffic will be rerouted as follows:

    • Northbound I-295 and southbound DC-295 traffic seeking access to M Street, SE from the westbound I-695 Freeway Bridge will use the 8th Street, SE exit ramp to I Street, then to 8th Street. SE.
    • Northbound (inbound) 11th Street Local Bridge traffic from Historic Anacostia will be detoured to MLK, Jr. Avenue, SE to Howard Road, SE then to South Capitol Street, SE to access M Street, SE.
    • Local traffic wishing to access facilities east of 12th Street, SE will be detoured through N Street, SE.

    The closure will be in effect until 7:00 p.m. Sunday.
