Leaving the Mall Before the Parade
With the inauguration complete, travelers looking to head to points north of the parade route on Pennsylvania Ave. probably have two main options.
In the east, the 3rd St. Tunnel near the Labor Department is open to pedestrians.
In the west, 18th St. near the intersection of Constitution and Virginia Aves. is another option. Post reporter Megan Greenwell reports "smooth sailing" as many are moving quickly in an attempt to beat crowds to various Metro stops.
Around 1:15, the Farragut West station was busy but moving well, according to Post reporter Henri Cauvin.
We'll continue to monitor pedestrian flow around the area, to Metro stations and otherwise.
