The project involves the rehabilitation of the New York Avenue Bridge and approach roadways between Florida Avenue and 9th Street NE, including upgrades to the existing Amtrak electrical infrastructure in the rail yard. The existing bridge, built in 1966, consists of two side-by-side steel plate girder structures. The bridge passes over numerous rail lines operated by Amtrak, WMATA (DC Metro), CSX, MARC (regional commuter trains), and the Virginia Railway Express. The existing bridge will be enhanced by adding new steel plate girders, replacement of the existing concrete deck, strengthening of existing bridge piers and abutments, and overall improvements to the approach roadways, pedestrian sidewalks, and roadway lighting features. Project funding is provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
