Thomas Jefferson Street Bridge Project Wrapping Up Early
According to the Georgetown BID, the District Department of Transportation’s (DDOT) Thomas Jefferson Street Bridge rehabilitation project that began in July 2010 is expecting to be completed five months ahead of schedule. The project, which was expected to take one year to complete and involved demolition of the previous Thomas Jefferson Street Bridge, reconstruction of the road on both sides of the bridge, and construction of a new bridge deck and sidewalks, is estimated to wrap up this month.
The weather played a big role in the speedy rehabilitation process, says the BID, with mostly sunny days allowing workers to be on-site almost every day, from Monday to Saturday.
DDOT’s third and final phase of the C&O Canal Bridges Rehabilitation Project is taking place on the 29th Street Bridge, with a completion date set for January 2012. The third phase will begin this month. Please contact DDOT’s Mark Clabaugh at 202.671.4566 or Mark.Clabaugh@DC.gov with any questions or concerns about the project.
