WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- DDOT will close 11th Street, SE between M Street and K Street from 7 p.m. on Monday, March 31, to 5 a.m. on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
The 11th Street SE access ramp to westbound I-695 (Southeast/Southwest Freeway) will also be closed during this time so crews can begin demolition of the existing inbound bridge structure over 11th Street.
DDOT says this emergency closure is required due to recent inclement weather that delayed a closure that was scheduled to take place this past weekend.
The following detours will be in place:
• Northbound 11th Street SE traffic will be detoured via M Street SE to 8th Street SE, then onto G Street SE to access 11th Street SE north of K Street SE.
• Motorists traveling southbound on 11th Street SE will be detoured to I Street SE, then to 8th Street SE and M Street SE to access 11th Street SE south of M Street SE.
• Motorists seeking access to westbound I-695 (Southeast/Southwest Freeway) will follow the posted detour routes to I Street SE to the 3rd Street on-ramp to westbound I-695/I-395.
• Southbound 11th Street access will be maintained to K Street SE.
