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...
The Chinese New Year Parade will close some streets in the District's Chinatown on Sunday. There will also be a Caps game, Metro delays and Metrobus detours.
Travelers should have no problems with the weather during the day Friday, but the Capital Weather Gang says that after 9 p.m., some sleet and freezing rain may fall before changing to rain, which will continue early Saturday. Travelers bound for the Chinese New Year parade in the District or Super Bowl parties on Sunday should find the weather sunny and mild. Here's a look at some of the traffic and transit delays along the way.

On Tuesday evening, traffic restrictions will be in effect around the Capitol. President Obama is scheduled to deliver the State of the Union address at 9 p.m. These areas are scheduled to be closed from 7 p.m. until the end of the event:
The annual March for Life is Monday. D.C. police announced several street closings and some parking restrictions, but drivers also should be alert for large groups of people in downtown Washington, around the National Mall and at the Supreme Court.
Several of the many events that mark us as the nation's capital have the potential to slow travel this week. One, the annual March for Life to protest the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision will be held today. The other, the State of the Union address, is scheduled for Tuesday evening. The forecast for local travel looks pretty good -- unless you count late Tuesday into Wednesday, when the Capital Weather Gang predicts a storm will pass through, though it's still uncertain what type of precipitation we're in for.
