Install Vehicle Barrier System Around the Jefferson Memorial, Washington, DC
The National Park Service (NPS) proposes to construct a vehicle security barrier at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC. The purpose of the project is to replace the existing concrete barriers (installed in 2001) with a permanent vehicular barrier that is compatible with visitor use and the cultural landscape of the Jefferson Memorial site and that would improve access to the Memorial.
The current design process seeks to build and improve upon earlier efforts in 2002 and 2004. NPS is currently conducting public reviews under the National Environmental Policy Act and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Design refinements following these reviews will be completed in consultation with the Commission of Fine Arts, National Capital Planning Commission, the District of Columbia State Historic Preservation Officer.
