What's New?

Temporary suspension of lane shift
Effective Monday, April 6 at 12 p.m., the reversible lane shift on Arlington Memorial Bridge was suspended. This means the bridge will have two lanes open to Virginia and one lane open into DC. This traffic pattern will remain in effect until further notice. Sidewalk access has not changed.

Three lane traffic pattern
All traffic is currently traveling on the south side of the bridge and is using three lanes and one sidewalk. In the morning, two lanes are usually open into DC and one lane to Virginia. In the afternoon, two lanes are usually open to Virginia and one lane into DC, but this traffic pattern changed on Monday, April 6 at 12 p.m. (see above). Get all the details for drivers and pedestrians and bicyclists.

Rehabilitation work continues
Workers are working to install new bridge supports, doing structural work, and replacing sections of the bridge deck. Drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians should watch for workers and construction equipment when they use the bridge. Read more about Construction & News.


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.
