Service Bulletin - Anacostia Bridge Temporarily Out of Service
Released: Nov 14, 2006
Please be advised that CSX Transportation is re-routing north- and south-bound traffic around the Anacostia Bridge in the Washington, D.C. area.
The re-routing is necessary due to issues with the bridge structure that were identified as part of the company's routine inspection and maintenance program. In addition to re-routing, we are working to restore limited service on the bridge itself as the longer-term repairs are made.
The re-routing process has begun and we will provide updates as the plans unfold. In the meantime, delays can be expected.
We are working to restore normal service as soon as possible. Our primary concern is the structural integrity and safe operation of the bridge. At this time, we anticipate that the structural repairs will take up to 30 days.
For more information, contact your customer service representative or call 1-877-ShipCSX (1-877-744-7279), option 5, then option 6.
