Lesner Bridge Traffic to Be Reduced to Single Lanes on Saturday

Friday, February 02, 2018

Beginning tomorrow (Saturday the 3rd) at approximately 10:00 a.m., both eastbound and westbound traffic crossing the Lesner Bridge will be reduced to a single lane in each direction.

Single lane closures will be setup on Shore Drive approaching eastbound Lesner Bridge between DuPont Circle and Vista Circle.  Single lane closures will also be setup during this time for westbound Shore Drive traffic approaching Lesner Bridge between Page Avenue and East Stratford Street.

Both eastbound lanes on Lesner Bridge will be CLOSED until the concrete placement operations are completed.  All work and temporary lane closures on Shore Drive at Lesner Bridge are expected to be cleared by 10:00 p.m. Saturday night.

Drivers should be advised that, in addition to the lane reductions on the bridge, there will also be flaggers present who will intermittently stop all traffic in BOTH directions on the bridge to allow the arrival and departure of concrete delivery trucks.

There will be a lot of activity on the bridge throughout the day and evening, so drivers are encouraged to please plan accordingly and drive slowly when crossing the bridge.
