Description

Suitland Parkway is a limited access scenic roadway that was constructed during the early months of World War II by the Bureau of Public Roads to serve as a rapid transit road between Camp Springs in Prince George's County, Maryland, to Bolling Field Air Force Base, and ultimately the Pentagon and downtown Washington, D.C. In 1945, Camp Springs was renamed Andrews Field.

Today the Parkway is a dual lane roadway used by visitors and commuters approaching the nation's capital from the east. The White House frequently uses the Parkway along with congressional and military personnel, as well as foreign dignitaries who fly into and out of Andrews Air Force Base. The Parkway corridor is often the first image foreign heads of state get of the United States.

Hours:
