Roadway and Trail Rehabilitation Work at National Airport South

Starting in the fall of 2015 and continuing for a year, the Office of Federal Lands Highway, which is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration, undertook a much-needed project to improve the means by which vehicles, bicyclists, joggers and pedestrians safely enter and move about the southernmost edge of Reagan National Airport

Two bridges were rehabilitated.  One was the Virginia Route 233 Bridge, which connects U.S. Route 1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) and Crystal City to the immediate west of the George Washington Memorial Parkway and the airport to the immediate east (see photo above right looking north). 

The other was the South Exit Bridge, which carries vehicular traffic leaving the airport southbound onto the GW Parkway toward Old Town (see photo above left and top right both looking south).  Work on both bridges included sidewalk widening, new concrete deck overlay, asphalt repavement and regrooving of approaches and ramps, pavement restriping, new railings, and repainting.

A portion of the Mount Vernon Trail that crosses under the South Exit Bridge and overhead Metrorail tracks (see photo top right) was also upgraded with a trail realignment and widening, new curbs and stone masonry guardwall, new metal railings, asphalt repavement, and new dual water fountain for people and pets (see photo at left).  These were terrific upgrades.
