14th Street NW reopens

By Washington Post wire and staff reports

5:25 p.m. Update: D.C. officials report that all lanes on 14th between U Street and Florida Avenue have reopened.

5:05 p.m. Update: President Barack Obama and his family have delivered turkeys that didn't receive a presidential pardon to a food pantry for the poor.

After Obama issued the annual presidential reprieves to two turkeys at the White House on Wednesday, the Obama family passed out turkeys, stuffing and other Thanksgiving staples at Martha's Table, which is located between V and W streets on 14th. The first family also worked at the pantry during last year's holiday.

The president, his daughters, Malia and Sasha, first lady Michelle Obama and her mother, Marian Robinson, volunteered alongside friends and family.

Obama greeted patrons and their children with holiday wishes and high-fives, winking at toddlers as he packed bags with supplies.

Original post: The District Department of Transportation reports that 14th Street NW is closed from U Street to Florida Avenue.
