Arlington Memorial Bridge closure postponed

By: National Park Service

November 1, 2019

The National Park Service (NPS) has postponed the previously announced weekend closure of Arlington Memorial Bridge.  The closure is now scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15 and will last until 5 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 18. The change will allow the construction contractor to resequence work to prepare for the next phase of construction.

The total rehabilitation of Arlington Memorial Bridge began in fall 2018 and remains on schedule.  So far, workers have:

  • Replaced the concrete structures that support the southside of the bridge.
  • Installed new pre-cast concrete panels to replace half of the bridge deck.
  • Placed new steel beams on the southside of the bridge.
  • Cleaned, repaired and reinstalled the bridge’s historic granite balustrade.

The bridge’s 10-ton load restriction is in effect for the duration of the project.
