Local team to conduct study at Arlington National Cemetery

ARLINGTON, Va. (WAVY) – A Norfolk Army Corps of Engineers team has been asked to conduct a study at Arlington National Cemetery.

The team is looking at the accessibility of certain areas of the cemetery for its disabled visitors. The cemetery asked the team to see if the heavily visited areas meet current standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

“We’ll take a look at each site and literally travel the path designed for those in wheelchairs or those with some other impairment and see how they function,” said Duane Robinson, Norfolk District project manager.

A report will be issued with recommendations on how the cemetery can give better access for those with disabilities. That report is expected to be completed by mid-summer.
