The District Department of Transportation says it will begin construction next week on three new bridges over the Anacostia River.

DDOT says it will build the three 11th Street Bridges between the existing structures. The new bridges will have more lanes for cars, wider paths for pedestrians and bicycles and rails for the new streetcars that will connect Anacostia and the west side of the river.

The scheduled completion date is mid-2013. At last report, the project's price tag is $260 million.
