The Occupy DC could impact traffic, according to a press release from the District Department of Transportation and the Metropolitan Police Department.
The full release is below:
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) would like to advise the public about the possibility of traffic delays during the evening rush hour tomorrow.
Occupy DC has announced that on Thursday, November 17, 2011, between the hours of 2:30 PM and continuing through the evening rush hour, they plan to conduct a demonstration/march between the Key Bridge and McPherson Square.
Because any demonstration within Washington, DC always presents the possibility of causing traffic delays, the Department of Transportation and the Metropolitan Police Department urge motorists to be aware of the possibility of heavy pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic between the Key Bridge, McPherson Square, and surrounding areas. We further encourage motorists to avoid the areas described and use alternate methods of transportation if possible. Additionally, motorists and pedestrians traveling in these areas should use extreme caution.
