D.C. proceeds with bridge project despite preservation group’s suit

From the DC Examiner Web Site
The District is moving ahead with plans to replace the 11th Street bridges that span the Anacostia River in Southeast Washington, even as a local historic preservation group is suing to stop the project.

Mayor Adrian Fenty on Friday announced that the city had selected a contractor for the $300 million project to replace what the city has called “deficient” bridges.

The multiyear project will build two sets of new bridges — one for freeway traffic and one for local traffic. The freeway spans will connect Interstate 295 with the Southeast/Southwest Freeway, forming a route between the north and east that is currently cut off.
