It looks like its going to be another 16th Street Parking Lot during today’s rush hour. Alert DC has issued this Transportation Alert:
2400 Block of 16th St. NW will remain closed into & throughout rush hour. Avoid 16th St. NW if possible, use alternate routes.
Now while I don’t know why 16th is closed at Meridian Hill Park, I do think you should spend a minute to familiarize yourself with the Alert DC system.
This impressive emergency communication system is used by The DC Emergency Management Agency (DCEMA) to send emergency alerts, notifications and updates to all manner of electronic devices and email accounts.
While many alerts are of the transport and power-outage variety, they do help you decide between a traffic jam commute or communing at a patio bar
