GWMP North Section Rehabilitation

George Washington Memorial Parkway » GWMP North Section Rehabilitation » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration – Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (EFLHD) proposes to rehabilitate the northern section of the George Washington Memorial Parkway (GWMP). The original design and construction of the Parkway and its interchanges did not account for the type of use and volume experienced today. Rehabilitation efforts would address various roadway conditions, drainage problems and safety measures. The rehabilitation has been proposed to provide visitors with a safe and aesthetically pleasurable driving experience while extending the life of the Parkway.
