If we are thinking as big as possibly decking I-395 in this area, why not also consider the possibility of highway deconstruction. Many urban areas have recently demolished stretches of highway in downtown areas to reconnect the urban fabric.
This may be completely infeasible, but no more extreme than decking the highway - and probably more beneficial and more in line with the L'Enfant plan.
