Headaches on the horizon

Construction updates | D.C. area travel tips

Travelers may encounter some showers overnight before the heat begins to build back up Tuesday, the Capital Weather Gang says. Drivers on 16th Street NW will want to look out for the extra traffic around the tennis stadium north of Colorado Avenue. Here are more details.

Legg Mason Tennis Classic
The tournament is underway at the FitzGerald tennis center on 16th Street NW, just north of Colorado Avenue. Drivers and bus riders should expect extra traffic in the area during the afternoons and evenings.

Parking: Only local traffic is allowed on the neighborhood streets, which will be barricaded. Paid parking is available on the grass lot (Lot B) near the tennis stadium, but it's very limited and is not used if rain is in the forecast. (Keep track of the forecast with the Capital Weather Gang.) Updates are available online and through the tournament hot line, 202-721-9500.

Free shuttles: They run daily between the Red Line's Van Ness Metrorail station and the FitzGerald tennis stadium. There's free parking near the shuttle at the Van Ness Center Garage, at Windom Place NW and Connecticut Avenue. Show your tennis ticket at the garage for the free parking. At the tennis center, the shuttles stop outside the main gate.

The shuttles start 90 minutes before the matches through Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, they start two hours before the matches.

Metrobus: There's no rail station near the tennis stadium. However, Metro's S buses run along 16th Street NW. Silver Spring Station is the nearest rail connection.
