Street closures for Mardi Gras
Anyone who's ever been to Mobile or New Orleans for Mardi Gras knows it means more than trinkets, Moon Pies and fancy parties: It means street closures. Northern Virginia will get its share Tuesday night when streets in Arlington County close for the Clarendon Mardi Gras Parade.
According to Arlington County police, the following streets will close Tuesday night:
-- Wilson Boulevard from North Veitch Street to North Barton Street, from 6:45 to 9;30 p.m.
-- Wilson Boulevard from North Barton Street to North Irving Street, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
-- North Adams and North Wayne streets between Clarendon Boulevard and Wilson Boulevard, from 6:45 to 8 p.m.
Street parking in the area will also be restricted so be on the lookout for the temporary "No Parking" signs. If your car gets towed, call 703-228-4252.
The detours also mean that Arlington Transit buses 41, 61, 62 and 77 will take detours. Officials said riders on Routes 41 and 77 should use Clarendon Boulevard stops.
