On June 15th, Malcolm X contractor FMCC completed the erection of seven steel girders. This steel structure is approximately 191 feet long and is the only bridge that crosses over Interstate 295 within the Malcolm X project scope. This erection is an important milestone, as it connects the north and south sections of the 3.45-mile-long project.
On November 8th and 9th the Malcolm X contractor FMCC set the steel structure for the first of seven bridges that will be constructed under the I-295/Malcolm X Interchange Improvements Project.
Beginning Friday, May 24th, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will reduce the speed limit from 50 miles per hour to 40 miles per hour on the section of I-295 between the area south of Exit 1: US Naval Research Laboratory and the area south of East Capitol Street.
