Nuke summit to snarl traffic next week


President Obama, Chinese President Hu Jintao, and other world leaders are scheduled to meet in Washington next week to discuss Iran and North Korea’s nuclear programs. For feds and other Washingtonians, that’s going to mean several closed streets around the Washington Convention Center, restricted parking, detoured buses, and the temporary closure of the Mount Vernon Square Metro station.

Check out the Washington Post’s Dr. Gridlock here for more information, and start planning for your commutes next Monday and Tuesday to take longer than usual. Even if you’re not planning to go near the convention center, Dr. Gridlock notes that traffic problems will probably spread out to other parts of the district. Who knows — it may be a good day to telework.
