On Wednesday, April 27, 2016, a Public Scoping Meeting was held to discus the proposed Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) Southern Expansion Project and Associated Roadway Realignment in Arlington County.
ANC is proposing to increase its contiguous acreage by utilizing an area adjacent to the existing cemetery, the former Navy Annex site, now known as the Southern Expansion site. To accomplish this, the cemetery has been working with the owners and operators of the adjacent road network, Arlington County and VDOT, to pursue a roadway realignment and land exchange agreement.

Scoping comments may be submitted until May 31, 2016, at SouthernExpansion@usace.army.mil
