Congestion near Nats Park

5:15 P.M. UPDATE: D.C. officials warn that congestion associated with the end of the ballgame will extend evening rush hour. Metro reports that delays are still being experienced at the Green Line's Navy Yard Station.

Original post: The game is over, and baseball fans are heading home from Nationals Park. That means extra congestion on the roads and Metrorail.

The South Capitol and M streets, the Southeast-Southwest Freeway, the Douglass Bridge, the 11th Street and 14th Street bridges, and Interstate 295 are the usual pressure points. This afternoon, the baseball crowd combines with rush-hour traffic and cherry blossom visitors heading home.

On Metro, the Green Line's Navy Yard station is jammed. Crowding also will occur at the main transfer points, at L'Enfant Plaza and Gallery Place.

I'm glad that Metro knows about this so that they can reduce service to handle the increased crowding.
