Load Limits on Arlington Memorial Bridge
Beginning June 22, 2015, a 10-ton load limit will go into effect on the Arlington Memorial Bridge.
According Washington, D.C., Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, the load limits will have profound effects not only on residents, but on Metro and tour buses, worsening already clogged roadways to and from the nation's capital. She said that the partial closure will be particularly difficult for people going to Arlington National Cemetery and for D.C.'s tourist-based economy.
The bridge's two outside lanes and sidewalks are currently closed, adding to the congestion.
