Significance: Suitland Parkway came into existence during World War II to improve transportation for defense industry employees. Despite increased usage, it still remains essentially incomplete some 45 years after it officially opened. Suitland Parkway is one of the parkways that make up the network of entryways into the capital. It has hosted both triumphal and mournful processions. It consists of 9.18 miles of roadway (2.8 miles in the District of Columbia and 6.38 miles in Maryland) through a park corridor comprised of 587.79 acres managed by the National Park Service and the balance by the District of Columbia. The roadway extends from the Anacostia River in the District to Maryland Route 4.
