Some metrobus lines will be detoured because of street closures around the U.S. capitol for tonight's state of the union address.

Four Metrobus routes: the 32, 36, 34 and 96, will be rerouted to accommodate street closures. For security reasons streets around the U.S. Capitol will close starting as early as 7 p.m. and Capitol Square will be restricted to authorized pedestrians only starting at 6 p.m. The changes will remain in effect until the President leaves the area.
