Woodrow Wilson Bridge Dedication

At a star-spangled ceremony attended
by more than 1,400 dignitaries and guests, the first new Woodrow Wilson Bridge was dedicated. One of the nation’s largest public works, the $2.4 billion Woodrow Wilson Bridge
dedication signaled a new dawn for congestion-weary commuters and interstate travelers: The beginning of the end of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge
corridor’s notorious traffic congestion. In addition to serving as a major local commuting route, the Wilson Bridge is the mid-point of Interstate 95, the east coast’s busiest
highway. The Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project is jointly sponsored by the Federal Highway
Administration, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Maryland State Highway
Administration and the District of Columbia Department of Transportation.
