Welcome to the official I-295 Malcolm X Interchange Project website


The shared-use path is now officially open for public use.

We hope you enjoy the path and all it has to offer!


The Department of Transportation (DDOT) began construction on the I-295 Malcolm X Interchange Improvement Project in September 2018.

Improvements will be made between Firth Sterling Ave, SE on the north, and the South Capitol Street/Martin Luther King Jr. Ave, SE intersection to the south. The project scope of work includes bridges, retaining walls, reconfiguration of interchanges, storm drainage, lighting, extensive landscaping, continuous shared use path, and other related improvements.

The DDOT team will communicate with residents, ANC commissioners, civic organization leaders, businesses, and other stakeholders to provide periodic updates on the status of the project.
