George Washington Memorial ParkwayDedicated in 1932, the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway was created to honor George Washington's 200th birthday. This scenic parkway connected Mount Vernon to the recently dedicated Arlington Memorial Bridge. As the ﬁrst modern motorway built by the federal government, it was praised as "America's Most Modern Highway." Innovative construction plans included landscaping, widely spaced access ramps, and overpasses instead of intersections.
