Signs from the parking lot will direct people to a large meeting trailer located behind an office building. Free parking is available. The headquarters building is roughly one mile from the L’Enfant Metro Station.

Since its dedication in 1932, Arlington Memorial Bridge has served as a monument to national sacrifice and valor—a symbol of reunification, spanning the historic divisions of North and South. It is one of the largest transportation infrastructure projects in National Park Service history, a news release said. Learn more at go.nps.gov/MemorialBridge.
