Arlington Road Closures for Saturday’s Events

I got this as a text message from the Arlington Alert system. A number of roads will be closed to accommodate the Battle of the Boulevard 10K Race and the Neighborhood Day Parade. This will affect mainly the Clarendon, Courthouse, and Rosslyn neighborhoods.

So if you need to get somewhere in these areas or on the other side of them, do some serious planning because there’s nothing quite as chaotic as trying to drive through a road race. You are either stuck until the race is over or else driving slowly along with the other folks who didn’t plan adequately and are trying to find an open street.

From the message:

The following streets will be closed for the Battle of the Boulevard 10K Race:

From 6:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.:
• Wilson Blvd. from Washington Blvd. to N. Highland St.
• Clarendon Blvd. from Washington Blvd. to N. Highland St.
• N. Highland St. from Clarendon Blvd. to Wilson Blvd.

From 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.:
• Wilson Blvd. from N. Highland St. to N. Arlington Ridge Rd.
• Northbound lanes of Route 110 from Route 1/I-395 to N. Arlington Ridge Rd.

The following streets will be closed for the Neighborhood Day Parade:

From 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.:
• N. 15th St. from Courthouse Rd. to Wilson Blvd.
• N. 14th St. from N. Veitch St. to Courthouse Rd.
• N. 13th St, from N. Highland St. to Washington Blvd.
• Wilson Blvd from Washington Blvd. to N. Highland St.

Race participants and Neighborhood Day attendees are encouraged to use Metro. The Clarendon, Courthouse, and Rosslyn stations on the Orange Line are located near both events.

In addition, street parking in the area will be restricted. Motorists should be on the lookout for temporary “No Parking” signs.
