Tomorrow night is the State of the Union address, and as such, there’s a planned motorcade from the White House to the Capitol and back again, and heightened security in the area near the Capitol. In addition, there will be street closures. Metro has announced the following changes:
Metrobus routes 32, 36 (Pennsylvania Avenue Line), 34 (Naylor Road Line) and the 96 (East Capitol Street/Cardozo Line) will be rerouted from 7 p.m. until the President leaves the area.
So, if you’re heading in that direction on the bus tomorrow night, plan to go a little earlier, or a whole lot later. Streets are likely to be closed south of Louisiana and Mass Aves to the north, and north of Virginia Ave and North Carolina Ave to the south. Full closures will be announced likely this evening.
Update, 4:15p: As expected, the road closures are out, and match up largely with what we’re talking about above.
