I suspect the registration is being held so that no one else can use that reg #, probably by lawyers for the victims families.

The FAA registration shows the aircraft as unknown status because of lack of current aircraft information.

It's on the FAA web site as 'Not suitable for registration'.

Is there any sort of memorial or marker on the bridge?

Registration date is reflective as just after the accident, indicating a change to it's current status

DC's 14th St. bridge was renamed the "Arland D. Williams, Jr. Bridge" in honor of a passenger who died while saving other passengers on the flight.
