Work is underway at Arlington Memorial Bridge! Since last March, the project team has been at work installing new, pre-cast concrete panels on the bridge deck. That work is now done, and we are now installing the sidewalks and driving surface. With the road deck in place, it's also time to start reinstalling the historic, granite balustrade and the metal panels in the middle of the bridge.
The structure that supported the balustrade needed to be replaced, and this was the first time all of the stone has been removed since 1932. Workers are reinstalling the granite balustrade in the exact same locations where they have been for the last 86 years. This is important because it will helps maintain the bridge's historic fabric and function.
