If your going to be in the DMV make sure you look at this!!!
WASHINGTON (AP) — If you want to get to the National Mall on Inauguration Day, you’re probably better off not driving.
The hundreds of thousands of people spilling into the nation’s capital Monday are encouraged to travel by rail, bus or bicycle. And no matter what they choose, those watching the inauguration activities will eventually end up on foot — and possibly walking several miles — if they want to catch a glimpse of President Barack Obama.
The region’s transportation infrastructure is strained during peak driving hours on a normal day. During the morning rush hour, it can take an hour to traverse the 10-mile stretch of Interstate 395 between Springfield, Va., and the District of Columbia. Many Metro subway trains are standing room only.
However, with much smaller crowds expected than for Obama’s historic first inauguration four years ago, getting in the car will still be an option.
