The Capitol Crossing Project has completed the first phase of construction for an elevated deck above Interstate 395 in Washington, D.C., and has begun vertical construction on the first building at Capitol Crossing, a three-block, seven-acre, 2.2 million-square-foot project that will consist of five mixed-use buildings. The completed work includes upgraded infrastructure such as a new high-voltage electrical line and new water mains. The second phase will consist of almost 30,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space with 11 stories of offices above, as well as completion of the highway deck over I-395 to E Street, NW.

The District of Columbia has long encouraged the development of a platform over I-395.  Following an extensive environmental assessment, outreach to the affected communities and approval of the necessary permits, construction commenced at the end of March 2014. DDOT and many other agencies have worked closely with the developer and contractor to create a viable maintenance of traffic plan for the project during all phases of construction.

Michael Randolph, PE, Design Manager for STV Incorporated and Rebecca Nordby, Project Executive for Balfour Beatty Construction DC will be discussing the design and construction successes and challenges for the first phase of construction and present what will be in store for the completion of the Capitol Crossing Project.
