The Arlington Memorial bridge is the bridge that crosses the Potomac River north of Jefferson Memorial, from the Citadel in the direction of Washington Monument. It is in a severe state of decay, and contains numerous ruined vehicles top-side, a portion of the bridge has collapsed into the Potomac River.
Below the bridge to the west, there is a raider encampment, while on the eastern side, there is a scavenger under the bridge that the Lone Wanderer can trade with. On the eastern side there is also a super mutant base near the irradiated metro.
- North of the bridge, east end, between the scavenger and raider camp, is a grave with search party log #3 for the Searching for Cheryl unmarked quest.
- The county sewer mainline comes out into the Potomac just north of the bridge, on the west side.
- Like many other things, the scavenger under the bridge is removed during Take it Back!, but if he was not killed before the quest, he reappears after it if Broken Steel is installed and he will help fight the bandits during Protecting the Water Way.
- At the raider camp on the east side of the bridge, a Brotherhood of Steel paladin may spawn if you kill all the inhabitants.
Arlington Memorial bridge appears only in Fallout 3.
