Major Roadwork This Weekend

Big traffic delays are likely this weekend because the National Park Service plans to close Memorial Circle on the Virginia side of the Memorial Bridge, near Arlington National Cemetery. This is part of the rehabilitation work going on between Arlington National Cemetery and the Memorial Bridge, which leads across the Potomac to the Lincoln Memorial.

The closing is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Friday and continue until noon Sunday, weather permitting.

Barring traffic from Memorial Circle will have a ripple effect, so you probably won't want to be anywhere near there.

To get across the river, take the 14th Street Bridge, the Roosevelt Bridge or the Key Bridge.
If you plan to visit the national cemetery or the Memorial to Women in Military Service to America, take Route 110.

Access to Memorial Bridge will be cut at several points in the District to accommodate the work: Rock Creek & Potomac Parkway at the Kennedy Center, 23rd Street and Constitution Avenue and the ramp from Ohio Drive to Lincoln Circle.

In Virginia, the northbound lanes of George Washington Parkway leading to Memorial Bridge will be closed at Washington Boulevard.
