Today, the National Park Service (NPS) reopened the rehabilitated Arlington Memorial Bridge to drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. Arlington Memorial Bridge has served as a monument to the sacrifices and valor of our nation’s military personnel since its dedication in 1932. The $227 million rehabilitation project is one of the largest infrastructure projects in NPS history. Throughout rehabilitation of Arlington Memorial Bridge, the NPS took special care to protect Arlington Memorial Bridge’s historic architecture while enhancing its iconic appearance. Since work began in fall 2018, construction workers methodically removed, cleaned, repaired and reinstalled more than 2,300 pieces of granite and rehabilitated the bridge’s historic structure.
