As readers know, Pope Francis will be visiting Washington D.C. from September 22 to 24. As Joe Biden would say, this is a BIG deal. Commuters and visitors should anticipate long delays, road closures, detours, and parking restrictions in many areas around Washington, D.C.
Here’s the latest…
Metro released its preliminary service information for the visit. Metro will run rush hour service pretty much throughout the day. Metrorail also released two videos on how to ease your commute during the papal visit. Metrobus has released its service information during the papal visit.
The Washington Post has a good list of road closures and parking restrictions for the visit.

If you are commutting instead of teleworking like me during the three days, the guide is a MUST read.
