What's New?

Rehabilitation work continues
Workers completed pre-cast contrete installation during summer 2020. They are currently preparing the bridge's sidewalks and will soon pour a new driving surface. Drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians should watch for workers and construction equipment when they use the bridge. Read more about Construction & News.

Temporary suspension of lane shift
Until further notice, all traffic is traveling on the south side of the bridge using three lanes and one sidewalk. There are two lanes to Virginia and one lane to DC. Get all the details for drivers and pedestrians and bicyclists.


More than a bridge

Arlington Memorial Bridge has served as a monument to the sacrifices and valor of our nation’s military personnel since its dedication in 1932. Now that it is nearly 90 years old, the National Park Service and Federal Highway Administration are rehabilitating the bridge for service in its second century. As one of the largest transportation projects in National Park Service history, the rehabilitation of Arlington Memorial Bridge will give new life to our capital’s ceremonial entrance while respecting its character, history, and national significance.
