This not-for-the-last-time patch-up job will reportedly extend the bridge's life span (npi) for five more years before it has to close down in 2021 if the National Park Service can't pony up the $250 million or so to rebuild this colossal crossing, built in 1932 from an 1886 neoclassical design by McKim, Mead & White to link the Lincoln Memorial with Arlington National Cemetery in a style compatible with both sites.
No wonder London Bridge was falling down.
