Work is underway on repairs to the Key Bridge connecting Rosslyn to Georgetown. According to Eric Balliet from the Arlington Department of Environmental Services, the majority of the work is being done under the bridge and will have a minimal impact on traffic across the bridge. Traffic-affecting work is planned to take place only during midday or overnight. The only other impact anyone crossing the bridge might notice, according to Balliet, is periodic closures of the bike-pedestrian paths on the side of the bridge.
At street level, the Key Bridge Rehabilitation Project is adding new LED streetlights and poles, as well as retrofitting barriers to increase safety. Below the street, Project is working to repair the existing concrete and steel superstructure and deck. The project was started in September and is currently working on the Georgetown side of the bridge. Balliet says as the project continues, it will progress from north to south. The project is entirely D.C. funded, according to Balliet, with no funds coming from Arlington.
