Construction will be performed in several stages. During several phases of the work, expect lane closures. A minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times on the Arlington Memorial Bridge during construction.

The permanent closures of the outside lanes will remain in place until the structural bridge repairs are complete. There will be no additional lane closures on the bridge during designated rush hours (5am to 9:30am & 2:30pm to 7:00pm, Monday through Friday).

Expect night work and work on weekends.
