Rosslyn Skybridges Closed, To Be Demolished

The skybridge over N. Lynn and N. Moore Streets in Rosslyn closed to pedestrians today and, starting this weekend, will be taken down permanently.

The demolition is part of the construction of the Central Place project — the same construction that has closed lanes on N. Lynn Street and snarled rush hour traffic in the area.

Starting this Friday at 8:00 p.m. until Monday at 6:00 a.m., N. Lynn Street will be closed to drivers and pedestrians as the skybridge is taken down. The following weekend, from March 28-31, N. Moore Street will be closed for the same duration.

The skybridges over N. Nash Street and Fort Myer Drives will remain open, but those hoping to use the skybridges to access the Rosslyn Metro Station will need to enter the Rosslyn Metro Mall and go down the escalators to do so.

According to Arlington County, the skybridges will be taken down in sections and either hauled away or staged on site and “cut to manageable lengths” before being taken away.
