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.

Metro is advising people to add time to their trips if using these routes.

Anyone driving near the Capitol can expect detours.
