PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS: FREDERICK DOUGLASS MEMORIAL BRIDGE

The Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge Project will replace the existing 68 year old structure over the Anacostia River with a new multi-arch bridge. The signature project will carry 6 lanes of traffic along South Capitol Street and includes new traffic patterns at both approaches. The project is located within the heart of Washington DC, just south of Nationals Park and upstream of the Potomac River near the Washington Navy Yard.
