West Glebe Road bridge partially reopens to vehicle traffic

The West Glebe Road bridge partially reopened yesterday, though pedestrian and bicycle traffic will have to wait to make use of the bridge.

The bridge was previously in a severely deteriorated state, necessitating partial closures over the years until the bridge fully closed last summer.

The bridge partially reopened yesterday (Wednesday) with one lane open in each direction.

According to the Arlington County website:

As of March 8, 2023, the West Glebe Road bridge is open to motor vehicle traffic, with one lane open in each direction. Pedestrian and bike traffic will continue to detour on the temporary bridge to the east of the main bridge.

The bridge is expected to fully open in summer of 2023, after completion of work on parapets, substructure, and streetlights.

The Arlington County website said the next phase of construction will see the bike lane, curb and sidewalk put into place.

The Four Mile Run Trail underpass on the north end of the bridge remains closed until reconstruction is completed.
