Information on road and bridge closings during the Inauguration.
Basically all bridges and roads going into DC from VA will be closed to any non-mass transit vehicles. If you aren't on a bus, on a bike or on the metro you aren't getting into DC on January 20th. Road closures in DC proper will begin on Monday January 19th.
Plan carefully folks!
“We urge motorists – whether traveling by bus, van or car – to plan their route well in advance, know what bridges and roads will be restricted and where they will park, make sure their vehicle is in top operating condition, travel with a full tank of gas and prepare for long delays and a lot of walking,” said Col. W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent. (from the NBC Washington Website)
I wonder why VA is closing all roads and bridges but MD isn't? It says that vehicular traffic is not limited from MD, only VA (although DC is urging MD residents to use mass transit). Interesting!
