In Design: South Abingdon Street/34th Street South over I-395 Bridge Rehabilitation in Arlington County
Cost and schedule ►
This project will rehabilitate the South Abingdon Street/34th Street South bridge over I-395. The bridge was originally built in 1970 and rehabilitated in 1994.

- Repairing concrete piers and abutments
- Adding protective concrete barriers adjacent to piers
- Extending and adding concrete in-fill walls between piers

The existing sidewalks on both sides of the bridge will remain and the bridge bicycle lanes will be restriped as part of the project.
Within the project limits, South Abingdon Street/34th Street South averages 8,300 vehicles a day and I-395 averages up to 209,000 based on 2019 data.
Preliminary Engineering: $900,000
Construction: $7 million
Total: $7.9 million
The project is financed with state maintenance funding.
This project aims to improve safety for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians, and extend the overall life of the bridge.
