I was driving through our nations Capital this morning when it occurred to me that it took me an HOUR to get from the bridge from Virginia to Constitution Ave to Columbia Heights. An hour! That is twice as long as it should!! I realized the inauguration craze has already begun. With the expected influx of visitors into the District of Columbia, things are about to get a little crazy!
If you're planning on joining the festivities and events for the inauguration of our next U.S. president, please take head from the following announcements, and get your walking shoes ready!
The secret service has released transportation plans for the events:
ALL bridges into and out-of DC from Virginia will be CLOSED, except for Bus traffic beginning January 20th, until morning rush hour the next day.
The black line below, is about a 3.5 mile radius of DC that shoes vehicle road closures.
You'll want to make sure that if you plan on driving, you think otherwise! The metro, the bus, your walking shoes..all great alternative options for getting into D.C. for inauguration day.
