Permanent closure of Clarendon Boulevard slip lane to 15th Street North
As of Tuesday, March 13, 2018, the slip lane turning from Clarendon Boulevard to 15th Street North, in the Clarendon-Courthouse neighborhood, was permanently closed as construction begins on a pedestrian safety improvements project.
For those visiting Courthouse Plaza, the County government office building, access into the parking garage from Clarendon Boulevard will remain open during construction, with the exception of intermittent interruptions. Outbound access from the parking garage to Clarendon Boulevard/15th Street will be closed until the project is complete. Vehicles exiting the garage should use the N. Veitch Street exit.

Elevated Clark Street permanently closed
The southbound elevated Clark Street structure between 12th and 20th Streets South, in Crystal City, was permanently closed on Monday, Feb. 5, 2018. The structure will be demolished.
Elevated Clark Street was made redundant with the conversion of Crystal Drive to two-way operation. Removing the elevated structure will help reduce visual and physical barriers between Crystal City and Pentagon City, provide new open space and pedestrian routes, and establish new building development sites.

Washington Boulevard Bridge over Jefferson Davis Highway
In April 2015, crews working for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) reduced traffic from three lanes to two in each direction on Washington Boulevard (Route 27) over Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 110) in Arlington.
For the duration of the project, the lane reduction will allow crews room to replace and widen the structurally deficient, 74-year-old bridge. Estimated completion date is summer 2018.
Drivers are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes if possible, particularly northbound during the AM rush hour, where drivers could experience a 10-minute delay. Motorists are also asked to be alert to Pentagon and Virginia State Police who will help facilitate traffic movement.
