The South Capitol Street Corridor Project calls for replacing the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge and transforming related sections of urban freeway into a scenic boulevard that increases pedestrian and vehicular safety, improves multimodal transportation options, increases community accessibility and supports economic development on both sides of the Anacostia River.

In coordination with the proposed surface construction, water, wastewater and stormwater subsurface utilities, Bryant was tasked with pre-construction inspections of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) tunnel infrastructure and 4,000 LF of various large diameter stormwater pipes, ranging from 90- to 132-inches. Documentation included video of the WMATA tunnel and CCTV of the stormwater pipes and the accompanying reports to establish a baseline condition assessment of the assets prior to initiation of construction of the surface improvements.

Upon completion of construction, the same inspection and documentation will be completed to determine what, if any, effect the surface construction had on the surrounding infrastructure’s condition, structure and/or functionality as a result of the proposed construction activities.
