WASHINGTON, DC-Skanska, in partnership with La Plata, MD-based Facchina Construction Co. has been awarded a $260 million design/build contract from DC’s Department of Transportation. The JV, of which Skanska owns 70%, will build three bridges across the Anacostia River as well as two interchanges. The idea behind the contract, awarded by the District’s Department of Transportation, is to ease traffic and facilitate crossings, a Skanska spokeswoman tells GlobeSt.com.

Of the three bridges over the Anacostia River, two will be separate bridge spans, each with three lanes in one direction for regional traffic. The bridge crossing will link the Southeast Freeway with Interstate 295/Anacostia Freeway. The third crossing will be a single bridge span with four lanes, two in each direction. This one is intended for local traffic between the city sections on each side of the Anacostia.

One of the two interchanges will be built on the west side of the river–a new connection to the Southeast Freeway and 11th Street. On the east side, the existing interchange that connects local and regional traffic of the Anacostia will be reconstructed, with a lower overall height and located further away from the adjacent neighborhood. The project is expected to deliver in May 2013.
