Officials Warn of Flashing Lights on 14th Street Bridge

The flashing lights on the 14th Street Bridge tonight are not a sign there’s a dance party happening over the Potomac River. Rather, the lights will be flickering on and off as part of the on-going 14th Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

DDOT and PEPCO say they’ll be testing power circuits on the bridge between midnight and 2:00 a.m. They’re warning that the testing “will cause streetlights and overhead sign lights to turn off at various times throughout the test period.”

All three spans — northbound, southbound and HOV — will be affected.

The timing, it seems, is a bit unfortunate. The testing will be taking place just as many party-goers start leaving bars and clubs in the District to return home to Virginia.

“Travelers are urged to slow down and use caution on the bridge and the impacted streets during the outage,” Arlington County’s Office of Emergency Management advised this morning.
