American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial Site Preparations

Preparations are underway, near 2nd St and Washington Ave SW, for the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (http://www.avdlm.org/). Memorial construction in and around the footprint of the site (from the southwest of Washington Avenue and northeast of 2nd Street SW) will continue through the fall of 2014. Minor street and lane closures will occur as construction work continues. Pedestrians traveling between the Rayburn and Ford House Office Buildings should use the route below instead of walking to Independence Avenue. This route will remain in place for the remainder of the Memorial construction through the fall of 2014.

Please continue to allow for an additional five minutes in your commute between the Ford and Rayburn House Office Buildings. Please refrain from using cell phones while crossing streets, follow any posted signage, pay special attention to pedestrian signals and heed to traffic control officers or US Capitol Police Officers.

You may reach the Disabled Veterans' Life Memorial Foundation at info@dvlmf.org or 800.331.7590. or the House Superintendent’s Office at 202.225.4141 if you have further questions or concerns.
