While it might not be readily apparent to District motorists or local residents, some of the most visible continued progress on preliminary design work for the South Capitol Street Corridor Project and new Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge is being made overnight along existing roadways.
The Project Completion Phase (Phase II) of construction for the 11th Street Bridge Project is anticipated to offer a number of contracting opportunities for qualified Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs). A DBE goal of 24.5 percent has been established for all work associated with this new second phase of the project. In addition, there will be 23 “On- the- Job Training” (OJT) positions available. Project construction is planned to be completed late 2015.
