ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Arlington National Cemetery says it has completed a construction project to improve access to the gravesite of former Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy.
The new design uses a granite path to connect Kennedy's site to those of his brothers John and Robert, who are also buried at Arlington.
A memorial marker for a fourth brother, Joseph P. Kennedy Jr., who died in World War II, has also been placed near Ted Kennedy's gravesite.
The project was paid for by Ted Kennedy's estate, according to the cemetery.
The Kennedy family said in a statement Wednesday that it is pleased with the new design and honored that the gravesites are visited.
