WASHINGTON — The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is closing lanes on the Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt Bridge for four months due to emergency repairs.
If you use the Roosevelt Bridge on your commute, get ready to find a different route.
Three lanes on the bridge have been shut down for repair work and will be closed for about four months, officials said.
In the meantime, vehicles less than 10 tons can access the bridge using two outer lanes outbound and two outer lanes inbound. Drivers can also use alternate routes while repairs are being made.
DDOT is urging commuters to plan ahead if traveling through the bridge these next few months. They're expecting heavy traffic delays along the bridge and surrounding roads.
