29th Street Canal Bridge Completed
You can now drive on 29th Street between K and M Streets. D.C. Department of Transportation’s Three Bridges Project -- begun in August 2009 ¬-- has been completed.
The bridge over the C&O Canal along 29th Street was the third and last bridge replaced during the more-than-three-year job, which also replaced bridges over the canal at 30th and Thomas Jefferson Streets.
According to D.C.DOT’s Three Bridges’ website, “Monitoring of the canal walls and adjacent buildings is required for the duration of the project. Minor wall maintenance is included in the work as is roadway reconstruction work to tie into and transition the existing roadways and sidewalks into the new proposed bridges. Each bridge crossing includes extensive utility relocation and upgrade work involving water, electric, phone, and gas lines that will be coordinated with the respective utility companies.”
