ARLINGTON, VA – Arlington National Cemetery will participate in a public hearing and information session hosted by the Federal Highway Administration on the Arlington National Cemetery Southern Expansion (ANCSE) Defense Access Road (DAR) Project. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Pentagon City located at 900 South Orme St. in Arlington, Virginia.
Members of the public and local community will be able to learn more about the project, its preliminary design, and its tentative construction schedule as well as provide comment on its intent to proceed with the final design and construction of the DAR project improvements.
To achieve the vision of the Arlington National Cemetery Southern Expansion (ANCSE), the DAR project will realign Columbia Pike, modify the S. Joyce Street Intersection and the Columbia Pike/Washington Boulevard (Route 27) Interchange, and replace Southgate Road with a new segment of S. Nash Street. The project will also improve multimodal capacity by adding pedestrian and bicycle facilities as well as street lighting.
This project will result in a change of limited access control along the north side of the interchange and route 27 – which will be presented and discussed at the meeting.
The cemetery's Southern Expansion team will be on hand to provide information and visuals of the cemetery's new expansion project.
