Arlington Memorial Bridge

Your Guide
Dena Kennett, ASLA

The proposal to build Arlington Memorial Bridge was brought before Congress almost constantly beginning in 1886. But it was the 1902 McMillan Plan, a document that guided development in and around D.C. for the next century, that helped make it a reality. Although World War I stopped the project from moving forward, D.C.’s first traffic jam brought the project back to life.
