The majority of D.C. road closures are for Tuesday and Wednesday, but could be extended through Thursday.

If you were planning on heading anywhere in D.C. in the next few days, you might want to make other plans. The D.C. Police Department has announced a considerable number of street closures around the city that began on Tuesday, January 5, and will run through Thursday, January 7, 2021. Parking restrictions will also be in place on streets impacted by the closures. The closures are due to a string of First Amendment demonstrations that have been planned for areas near the U.S. Capitol, White House, and the National Mall.

D.C. Police also want drivers to be aware of intermittent closures that could pop up during the demonstrations and to use alternate routes whenever possible.
