This week, work began on the Washington Boulevard (Route 27) bridge that passes over Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 110) next to the Pentagon. The project will upgrade and widen the existing bridge, which has been designated structurally deficient.
Washington Boulevard (Route 27) will go from three to two lanes of traffic in both directions as it crosses over the Jefferson Davis Highway. The Pentagon and the Virginia State Police will be onsite to help manage traffic flow. However, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is advising drivers to expect minor delays on this stretch of road.
Please be patient and alert while the bridge repairs are underway. This temporary inconvenience will fix and modernize a critical piece of infrastructure that Virginia commuters utilize daily. You can view more about the project here.
