12th St. Tunnel to close today

This just in: Congress to exile Autobots

Seeing 'Transformers 3' up close

Other road closures and parking restrictions

The Decepticons' efforts to disrupt District traffic this week has taken another turn: The 12th Street Tunnel will close this afternoon as crews film scenes for "Transformers 3."

The District Department of Transportation says the tunnel will close from 1 to 4 p.m., reopening for rush hour, although filming will continue until 7.

Twelfth Street service roads between Independence And Jefferson will be closed for staging production equipment and there will be limited access to the Department of Agriculture, DDOT said.

DDOT officials added that there will be some parking restrictions along Independence near the 12th Street ramp from 1 to 7 p.m.

I certainly hope the District is reaping lots of remuneration for the hassle it will cause those of us that work and drive through the city this afternoon as we try to get home.

Why in heaven's name are they letting them do that in the middle of a work day?! Why can't they at least do it on the weekend?

I absolutely refuse to believe that whatever money the film people spend on food, drinks, etc. outweighs the inconvenience to the thousands and thousands of city residents who need to use that *public space* in the middle of the day.
