Monitoring Inauguration and Related Impacts on the MVT

Wednesday January 18, 2017

The MVT CID is closely monitoring potential impacts on our neighborhood due to the upcoming inauguration and related activities during the weekend of January 20. Based on current info, the MVT CID falls outside of the secure perimeter for the Inauguration swearing-in ceremony and we expect to experience nominal impacts. However, because of Inauguration activities occurring in adjacent areas, including the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, there will be associated traffic delays, parking restrictions and security measures that extend through western-most portions of the MVT CID as early as midweek. Scroll to the “Washington Convention Center” section in the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Subcommittees’ Joint Transportation Plan to learn what areas within the MVT CID are scheduled to be impacted. The “Women’s March on Washington” on Saturday, January 21 is anticipated to produce no impacts to MVT CID traffic operations. As noted by the District, “(A)ll street closures are subject to changes due to prevailing public safety concerns, traffic patterns that could adversely impact public safety, additions of events, or changes to the schedule.” Please continue to monitor the Presidential Inauguration page on the website for all the latest information on street closures and other important information. Note: The Mount Vernon Square Metrorail station will be closed on Inauguration Day (Friday, January 20).
