Arlington Memorial Bridge Rehabilitation


What's New?

Rehabilitation preparation continues
Workers are setting up staging areas on the western shore of the Potomac River and south of Memorial Circle. Drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians should watch for workers and construction equipment when they use the bridge. This work will continue throughout the summer.

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.
