New York Avenue Bridge closing for much of Saturday, Aug. 4

A stretch of the New York Avenue Bridge is closing for much of Aug. 4. as part of the bridge rehabilitation project.

New York Avenue NE will be closed between Florida Avenue and Penn Street on Aug. 4 from 1 a.m. to 5 p.m. Detours will be in place for New York Avenue traffic in both directions:

— Westbound traffic will be moved at Penn Street to Sixth Street and Florida Avenue before being allowed back on New York Avenue.

— Eastbound traffic will be shifted at Florida Avenue to Sixth and Penn streets NE before returning to New York Avenue.

The road closure and detours could create significant headaches for motorists. Try to use Rhode Island Avenue, H Street or Maryland Avenue instead.
