Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge reopens

WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia transportation officials say the Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge has reopened following repairs for problems discovered during routine testing.

Transportation officials say the bridge was closed Sunday morning for testing of the span, which can be swung open to allow water traffic to pass. Department officials announced shortly after 1 p.m. that the bridge had been reopened in both directions.

The bridge carries South Capitol Street over the Anacostia River.
