MAP: Walking to the Inauguration

Drivers will be an endangered species in D.C. on inauguration day, but walkers will be allowed virtually free reign. For those who plan to park their cars and hoof it into the city, here's a handy guide to walking over the 10 bridges into the District.

Full inauguration coverage.

Thanks for the incredible, actually useful map. Way to go, WaPo!

Regarding the Chain Bridge -- the graphic says there are no sidewalks to it on Route 29 from Arlington. That's true, but there is a safe pedestrian/bike route. Going northeast on Glebe Road (29) toward the bridge, turn right onto Old Glebe Road. Old Glebe has sidewalks, parallels Glebe, then crosses Glebe on an overpass. Turn left on Randolph Street and then right on a short bike path leading to 41st St. N. This will take you down to Glebe Road again, where there is a sidewalk. Cross Chain Bridge Road (there's a crosswalk and light) to the sidewalk on the Chain Bridge.

Glebe Road is VA-120, not US-29. The latter is the number for Lee Highway (and a short stretch of Old Dominion Drive near Lorcom Lane), and US-29 doesn't go anywhere near Chain Bridge.

Thanks 1995hoo, the graphic mentions Route 29 and I assumed they meant Glebe Road. I guess those route numbers are useful to someone.

I'd venture to guess that most people within northern Virginia don't navigate using route numbers. But they are not useful to anyone unless they are correct!

Any word on whether bicycles will be allowed into vehicle-restricted areas?

I have been looking at all the informative articles that the Washington Post has published and it will be so helpful to us when our group of Anchorage students and teachers arrive Friday to witness this historical Inauguration. The maps of the Mall, the Capitol grounds, the parade route, road closures, and now the walking map are invaluable. Thank you so much. We are all so excited and can't wait!
