The Arlington Memorial Bridge will close this weekend so crews can begin the next phase of rehabilitation.
Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians must use an alternative route from 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15 to 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 18.
A lengthy construction project has reached its halfway point. The closure will allow workers to start rehabilitating the north side of the bridge.
Traffic will now flow on the south side of the bridge, where repair work had been ongoing since fall of 2018.
Once the bridge reopens, the lane configuration won't change, the National Park Service says. There will be one eastbound and one westbound lane and a reversible lane for rush hour traffic.
Look for the overhead signals to direct you to the correct lanes.
