ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Deteriorating beam underneath Memorial Bridge (photo courtesy National Park Service)This week in local news started with a press conference at the Memorial Bridge, discussing the deterioration that has led federal authorities to close one lane of the bridge in each direction.

We were at the press conference but ultimately did not write an article about it, as there was little that was new from when we initially reported the story last Friday. One thing worth seeing, however: the photo included here, which shows the extent of the deterioration under the historic, 83-year-old span.

Feel free to discuss that or any other local item of interest in the comments.
