Repairs started on Friday and are expected to continue for four months, weather permitting, according to the District Department of Transportation.
DDOT said the bridge, located between D.C. and Arlington County, Virginia, will continue to be accessible to traffic. The left lanes are blocked by concrete wall.
The open lanes on the right will be subject to a load restriction of 10 tons, according to DDOT.
Commuters that use the Teddy Roosevelt Bridge to travel to and from Washington D.C., are recommended to use alternate routes while repairs are made.
