Federal agencies in Washington are being encouraged to allow employees to telework or use other work scheduling flexibilities tomorrow, when crowds are expected for events related to the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a Dream'' speech.
The Office of Personnel Management sent out a memo to agencies saying federal workers in the area should expect "significant commuting delays and travel disruptions.''
The following roads will be closed effective 3:15 a.m. on Wednesday through 6:30 p.m.:
The areas around the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, World War II Memorial and D.C. War Memorial are expected to be closed to pedestrian and bicycle traffic during ceremonies as well.
Metro is operating on a normal weekday schedule, but WMATA is urging visitors to avoid the Smithsonian Metro station due to the potential for overcrowding.
Events begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m.; President Obama is expected to speak at the Lincoln Memorial, as are former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.
