Closures & Construction
Projects may be postponed during inclement weather. The parkway will continue to inform the public and the media of any adjustments in the work schedules.
Part of Marshall Drive Near Marine Corps War Memorial Closed
Dominion Power will close the eastbound lane of Marshall Drive to vehicles between the entrance to the Marine Corps War Memorial and VA-110 (Jefferson Davis Highway) from December 9 to December 12 for re-paving. Drivers leaving the memorial will not be able to turn left onto Marshall Drive. Detour signs will be in place to direct drivers from the memorial to VA-110. The westbound lane of Marshall Drive will remain open.
The multi-use trail that hugs the wall of Arlington National Cemetery will remain open, but will be re-routed to accommodate construction equipment.
Drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians should obey direction from flaggers and watch for uneven surfaces.

Expect delays and take alternate routes when possible.
