Significance: The Alexandria Avenue Bridge, also known as the Welling Underpass, was one of the first group of parkway bridges to be operated and maintained by the U.S. Government. The appearance of this bridge is similar to many of the other bridges along the Mount Vernon Memorial Highway because of its native stone facing. Its uniqueness lies below the surface, as it is a two-hinged, rigid-frame, reinforced concrete bridge.
