Project approved by delegation. See letter dated 11 May 2018. Final design conforms to previously approved concept submission. Refer to DC Historic Preservation Office.


Dear Mr. Obernesser:

The staff of the Commission of Fine Arts has reviewed the revised final design for the rehabilitation of Arlington Memorial Bridge, which includes replacement of the bascule span structure, repair of the approach spans, cleaning of the stone veneer and balustrades, and replacement of the concrete deck of the entire bridge. The final design conforms with the previous recommendations of the Commission and the staff has no objections to the design as submitted.

With the authority delegated by the Commission at its meeting of 21 April 2016, we approve the final designs for the project, as documented in the drawings and materials received and dated 4 May 2018. If there are any additional changes, please contact the staff to determine if additional review will be required. For our project file, please forward a half-size set of the final construction drawing when available. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
