Street Closings For Komen Race on Saturday

The District Department of Transportation has been very good about relaying news on street closings associated with big weekend events. DDOT just sent out the police list of Saturday closings for the Susan G. Komen Global Race For the Cure.

Combine this entry with the previous one about Metro opening at 5 a.m. and suggesting stations to use, and you should have the makings of a plan.

The race in downtown Washington is scheduled to begin at 7:50 a.m. and end at 11 a.m., starting on the Mall then following this route:
-- North on 4th Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
-- West on Pennsylvania Avenue to Constitution Avenue, NW
-- West on Constitution Avenue to Virginia Avenue, NW
-- Northwest on Virginia Avenue to 18th Street, NW
-- North on 18th Street to C Street, NW
-- West on C Street to 19th Street, NW
-- South on 19th Street to Constitution Avenue, NW
-- East on Constitution Avenue to 15th Street, NW
-- South on 15th Street to Jefferson Drive, SW
-- East on Jefferson Drive to 7th Street, SW
-- South on 7th Street to Independence Avenue, SW
-- East on Independence Avenue SW to Maryland Avenue, the finish line

Police say there will be temporary street closings along the route until all of the participants have cleared the area.

These streets will be closed:
-- 3rd Street between independence Avenue, SW and Constitution Avenue, NW, from 6:30 a.m. to about 2 p.m.
-- 4th Street between Independence Avenue, SW and Constitution Avenue, NW, from 6:30 a.m. to about 2 p.m.
-- Independence Avenue, SW between 3rd and 7th Streets, from 5 a.m. to about 5 p.m.

The park service added some closings of its own:
-- Constitution Avenue will be closed from 15th Street to 23rd Street NW at 7 a.m. and reopen at 10 a.m.
-- Madison and Jefferson Drives will be closed from 15th Street to 3rd Street at 6 a.m. and reopen at 10 a.m.
-- 15th and 17th Streets will be closed from Independence Avenue to Constitution Avenue at 7 a.m. and reopen at 10 a.m.
