Asbestos Exposure in Arlington, VA

Located directly across the Potomac River from Washington D.C., Arlington, Virginia contains over 205,000 residents and many Federal Government offices, including the Department of the Navy, the Pentagon, and Arlington National Cemetery. Since its founding on February 27, 1801, Arlington has grown into a diverse community with several neighborhoods and urban villages.

Over the years, Arlington has undergone significant construction and redevelopment in order to better serve the needs of the region. On February 4, 1881, Fort Myer (formerly known as Fort Whipple) was established and developed into an important Signal Corps post and a base for the Army cavalry. Several exhibition flights by Orville Wright took place here in the early 20th century and during World War I, Fort Myer served as a staging area for engineering, artillery, and chemical companies and regiments. In anticipation of being drawn into the World War II conflict, Congress authorized funding for a new Department of War building in Arlington, which would house the entire department under one roof. Several contractors participated in the Pentagon Building project including John McShain, Inc. of Philadelphia, Wise Contracting Company Inc. and Doyle & Russell, both from Virginia. The largest employers currently located in Arlington are Virginia Hospital Center, US Airways Group, Lockheed Martin, and Marymount College.

The use of asbestos containing materials at construction sites and other sites in Arlington has been an issue for many years. Individuals who worked with and/or around asbestos products may be at risk to develop mesothelioma. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Arlington, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Stephen C. Yang.
