From the Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail inbox:

Iím writing on behalf of the staff at George Washington Memorial Parkway to let you know about some work that might affect your next visit to Arlington Ridge, specifically the areas adjacent to the US Marine Corps War Memorial and the Netherlands Carillon. On March 8, 2021, the park will begin construction of a new comfort station. This project, and the ongoing rehabilitation work at the Netherlands Carillon, will cause the trail between the Carillon and the Memorial to close.

If you want to walk or bike in the area, you can follow a signed detour along North Meade Drive and North Marshall Drive. We expect the detour will be in place through March of 2022. You can see a map of the detour online at https://transportation.arlingtonva.u...raffic-alerts/

If you have questions or concerns about the work, please donít hesitate to contact me by responding to this email or calling 202-438-9674.
