What’s going on with the Anacostica Bridge construction
Anacos has been closed to all traffic since October 31st.
Here’s what we know about the construction of the new bridge.
The bridge is being built on the eastern edge of the city.
Anacosis construction workers were still finishing up the first section of the bridge on October 31.
The second and third sections were completed on November 10th and 12th.
The first section was built on an elevated bridge, but it was moved to a lower level because of a shortage of materials.
It will be built in three phases.
Construction started on October 1, and is expected to take up to six months to complete.
It is estimated that the entire project will cost $1.6bn.
Construction was suspended in October due to flooding in a nearby area.
It has been temporarily resumed and the bridge is expected back up to normal traffic in about three weeks.
