Road Closings

Do you just so look forward to the annual Work Bank and IMF meetings each year? My favorite year was when I was at grad school at GWU – it’s pretty interesting to see your windows get plastic bolted to them for a week and a half. I always wondered if the risk of severe fire hazard or the risk of broken glass was worse…

Starting tomorrow be careful with road closings – for pedestrians, cars, and bikers. Make sure if you’re anywhere near the are that you’re carrying your work ID too – they’ll be checking. Here’s the initial information, but see the full closings here:

Beginning at 8 pm on Friday, October 19, until 9 pm on Monday, October 22, the following streets will be closed:
***18th Street, NW between F Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
***19th Street, NW between F Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
***20th Street, NW between F Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
***F Street, NW between 17th Street and 20th Street, NW
***Vehicular access to the 1700-2000 blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, the 1700 – 1800 blocks of H Street, NW, and the 800 block of 19th Street, NW is tentatively scheduled for AM Rush Hour traffic on Monday, October 22, 2007.

    Hey Poo Poo,

    Are you still interested in writing?

    Also: traffic disruption in Georgetown is a common occurence and will only invite people to mow down protestors.
