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

REMINDER: The shared-use path is currently not open for public use.

There are still ongoing construction activities happening along the path. For your safety and security, please do not use the shared-use path until it is officially opened. We will inform the public when it’s open for use, so stay tuned and check back here for updates! 

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.
