Anacostia Transportation: 1 reviews and 5 photos
The major routes through River East include I-295, the Anacostia Freeway, and Suitland Parkway. This area is also served by the Metro's Green, Blue and Orange Lines.
Interstate 295 - I-295 runs just 8 miles from the Beltway at the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, along the east bank of the Potomac, then into downtown Washington DC (where it is called the Southeast Freeway, or even Interstate 695 for 1.5 miles) before it merges with I-395. If you continue north on I-295 rather then heading into downtown DC, this route becomes Anacostia Freeway / Kenilworth Ave then the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.
Anacostia Freeway / Kenilworth Ave / Baltimore-Washington Parkway (DC & MD 295) - The non-interstate portion of I-295. It runs from I-295's end point all the way to Baltimore (via MD 295), mostly along the east side of the Anacostia River.
The Metro's Green, Blue and Orange Lines all cross the Anacostia. On the Green line, Anacostia Station and Congress Heights Station are in this part of town, on the Blue line you will find Benning Road Station and Capitol Heights Station, and the the Orange Line is accessible from Minnesota Avenue Station and Deanwood Station.
