Traffic should be noticeably lighter today because the federal and District governments are closed in observance of Veterans Day. All holiday and weekend traffic patterns are also in effect.
The changes include weekend and holiday traffic patterns on 16th Street NW, Connecticut Avenue NW, Canal Road NW, and Independence Avenue on Capitol Hill. The National Park Service says Rock Creek Parkway and Beach Drive will also observe holiday weekend traffic patterns.
The Park Service also says Henry Bacon Drive between 23rd Street and Constitution Avenue will be closed due to scheduled ceremonies at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Metro has announced its holiday bus service schedule will be in effect.
