Sleep in on Saturday - street closures for National Marathon

Don't forget the National Marathon is this Saturday morning.  It begins at 7:00 a.m., though many street closures will begin as early as 6:30 a.m.

As you can imagine, it will run right through the heart of Penn Quarter (and just about everywhere else).  Streets are expected to be re-opened by 1:30 p.m.  However, most Penn Quarter streets will be open by 11:30 a.m. (just don't leave the neighborhood).

A highly detailed map of street closures is available from DDOT here and a list of street closures and the route in text form is available here.

A list of exact times for street closures is available from the marathon here.  Relevant to you:

  • 3rd Street N.W. between Constitution and E Street closed from 7:00 a.m. until 8:15 a.m.
  • Constitution Ave N.W. from Pennsylvania Ave N.W. to 22nd Street closed from 7:05 a.m. until 8:20 a.m.
  • Pennsylvania Ave N.W. between 6th Street and Constitution Ave closed from 8:15 a.m. until 11:25 a.m.
  • Constitution Ave N.W. between Pennsylvania Ave and the 9th Street Tunnel closed from 8:15 a.m. until 11:25 a.m.
  • 9th Street Tunnel will be closed from 8:15 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

Our advice?  Sleep in on Saturday morning.
