While this weekend’s IMF/World Bank meetings tie up traffic in the District, Arlington will be dealing with its own series of significant road closures on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, the following streets will be closed for Clarendon Day and the Clarendon Day 10K/5K race.

5:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.:

  • Wilson Blvd and Clarendon Blvd between Washington Blvd and N. Garfield Street
  • N. Highland Street and N. Hartford Street at Wilson Blvd
  • N. Herndon Street at Wilson Blvd
  • N. Hudson Street at Wilson Blvd
  • N. Highland Street at Washington Blvd

6:00 to 10:00 a.m.:

  • Kent Street between N. 19th Street and Wilson Blvd
  • Northbound Route 110 between Rosslyn and Route 1 in Crystal City

8:00 to 10:00 a.m.:

  • Wilson Blvd from Arlington Ridge Road to N. Highland Street

On Sunday, the following streets will be closed for the Navy 5 Miler race.

6:00 to 10:00 a.m.:

  • Northbound I-395 Exit 8B to Washington Blvd will be closed
  • Washington Blvd between I-395 and the George Washington Parkway
  • Southgate Road between Columbia Pike and S. Oak Street
  • Columbia Pike east of S Joyce Street
  • Access to Boundary Drive from I-395 (Exits 9 and 10A)

  • Rain

    Clarendon Day looks like a washout.

      The 5K/10K races will not be affected. As a cyclist who often rides during rainy weather, in my experience, runners do not care about the weather! Even if it were below freezing outside with ice on the ground, they would still be there (with ice skates on if necessary)!

    • Michael H.

      30% chance of rain with scattered thunderstorms in the forecast. Doesn’t sound so bad to me. I plan to be there.

    • Clarendon

      It’d be nicer with sunny sky’s but as long as the bands are playing, Ill be there.

  • Nunya

    wonder how many brown flipflops worsh away.

  • Sharp

    Is Chaain Brridge closed this weekend? The signs are up in DC.

    • According to the sign on Glebe Road just past the intersection with Williamsburg Blvd., Chain Bridge closes tonight after the rush until (I think) 5 a.m. on Monday morning.

      Have a good weekend —

      • Steamboat Willie

        Chain Bridge is definitely closed. I found out the hard way in a cab last night and had to U-Turn and cross at Key Bridge. Nice fare as a result.

        I had bookmarked the ArlNow link to the DC DOT website listing the closure dates, and checked before leaving via cab last night, but of course DC DOT had not updated the page. Thanks for that.

    Wait a second, Clarendon is closed to vehicles ALL DAY for two events? And which one lasts until 8 p.m.?

  • Bob Platt

    Kirby Road at Old Dominion will be closed briefly around 9 a.m. Saturday for the Run with the Warriors 5K, just over the Arlington/McLean boundary line.

    Clarendon Day was better than the past.. would like to see more – looks like on the right track. Do wish we had fewer DC businesses and more Arllington businesses.
