Welcome to the official H Street Bridge NE Replacement project website

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Reconstruction of this bridge will enable private and public investment, the region’s most significant transportation hub. Today, the Hopscotch Bridge carries H Street NE over the railroad tracks behind Union Station. In order to make room for trains to pass below, the bridge rises above H Street’s normal elevation. Replacing the existing bridge will mean temporarily removing the streetcar stop atop the bridge but will include replacing it closer to the Union Station access with two sets of embedded tracks for smoother operations and more efficient travel.
