Drivers looking to cross the bridge from RFK Stadium and Hill East will have to take a different route from 9 p.m. next Friday to the following Monday at 5 a.m., the District Department of Transportation announced this week.

DDOT will divert drivers on East Capitol Street to Benning Road NE to cross the Anacostia River.

The bridge, also known as the Whitney Young Bridge, will undergo bridge preservation and repair work, DDOT said.
