Just heard on WTOP that the Virginia State Police will be closing I-395 and I-66 (the inner Beltway portion) from 2 a.m. Jan 20th through midnight. Thus, the ONLY WAY to get into the District from Virginia will be via the American Legion and Woodrow Wilson Bridges…on the Beltway.
Yeah, good luck with THAT. I’d be upset that DC was cutting VA off but honestly, I really don’t give a crap. For all you diehard Inauguralites, have fun playing in traffic…
Clarification, sorta: I-66 and 395 will be open for use by emergency vehicles, limos, taxis and (I think) charter buses. No word on how Metro’s going to work with connecting their Metrobus routes together. I’d assume using those arteries as well, but with WMATA, one never knows…
I was here back in 2001 and 2005 when Dubya was sworn in, and nothing like this happened. I believe this is pronounced OMGWTFBBQ?!
Also, was I totally out of whack flashing on the end of Back to the Future when Doc Brown flips down his awesome aluminum future shades and says, “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” ?
Oh man, this is gonna be one hell of a clusterf*ck. Wait, i think I like Tom’s line better: “OMGWTFBBQ”
