A proposal first revealed in November 2017 has already undergone a substantial amount of planning.
Rita Abou Samra reveals more details about the CC2DCA pedestrian bridge project, proposed as a link between the main commercial area of Crystal City, Virginia and Ronald Reagan National Airport and Mount Vernon trail.
