This Saturday, March 18, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon and 5K will take place in DC with parts of the race route coming through Mount Vernon Triangle. In conjunction with the event, there will be numerous parking restrictions and street closures, including the following that are specific to our area:

To help with traffic flow while these streets are closed, race organizers have informed the Mount Vernon Triangle CID that uniformed traffic control officers with the Metropolitan Police Department will be stationed at the following locations:
- Along 4-1/2 Street NW between I & K Streets NW to assist motorists impacted by the inability to access 4th Street NW (due to the race) and 5th Street NW (due to the FRESHFARM MVT Market) safely travel north up the one-way alley in the direction of K Street NW.
- At 3rd & H Streets NW to assist motorists impacted by the inability to access 4th Street NW and K Street NW (both due to the race) safely travel south across H Street NW via 3rd Street NW.
