Nuclear Security Summit, Monday, April 12-Tuesday, April 13
The Nuclear Security Summit will be held at the Washington Convention Center on Monday, April 12 and Tuesday, April 13, 2010. The summit will bring heads of state from nearly 50 countries to Washington, DC.
Commuting delays are anticipated on Monday and Tuesday due to road closures and detours, Metro bus and rail service interruption, motorcades, and security perimeters. Although most road closures and changes to Metro services will be near the Convention Center, other parts of the District may experience temporary road closures due to motorcades to and from the summit.
Tips to Remember:
- Allow additional time for commuting on Monday and Tuesday.
- Use public transportation.
- Monitor local media traffic updates, including road closures. For updates relating to GW, visit Campus Advisories (www.CampusAdvisories.gwu.edu).
