Lane Closures on Monroe Street Bridge


As part of an ongoing reconstruction project, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has shifted the traffic pattern on the Monroe Street NE Bridge between Seventh NE and Tenth Streets NE. This phase of work will include bridge demolition and is expected to last approximately nine months. Westbound lanes will be continuously closed. Traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes with a single lane in each direction. The sidewalk on the north side of the bridge will be closed. All pedestrian traffic will be directed to the south side. Bicyclists will use the full lane to travel through the construction zone, sharing with motorists during this phase. DDOT encourages all motorists to stay alert and obey construction signage when traveling through this area. For more information, visit
