What's happening now?

Ongoing staging area set-up and construction preparation

Drivers should watch for workers moving equipment to staging areas south of Memorial Circle and in cross-walks near Arlington Memorial Bridge. Workers may temporarily close lanes or stop traffic in order to stage equipment and construction materials. Use caution and follow workers' signals when you drive near the staging areas, around Memorial Circle, and on Arlington Memorial Bridge.


What's next?

Traffic pattern to change October 15

Beginning October 15, 2018, we will close three lanes on Arlington Memorial Bridge to begin intensive rehabiliation work. While the three lanes are closed, we will shift traffic to the other side of the bridge. There will always be one lane open eastbound and one lane open westbound. We will shift traffic in the third lane to accomodate rush hour traffic in and out of Washington, DC.
