A couple of events this weekend involve road closures that could cause some traffic headaches.

The Arlington County Police Department will close streets this Saturday, September 8, for the 11th Annual Arlington Police, Fire & Sheriff 9-11 Memorial 5K, which starts at 6:00 p.m.

ACPD advises drivers to avoid the following areas on Saturday:

  • 5:30-7:00 p.m. — Army Navy Drive between S. Fern Street and S. 12th Street will be closed.
  • 5:30-6:30 p.m. — S. 12th Street between Amy Navy Drive and Crystal Drive will be closed.
  • 5:30-6:30 p.m. — Crystal Drive will be closed to from S. 23rd Street to S. 12th Street.
  • 5:30-7:00 p.m. — Traffic at the Pentagon South parking area will be disrupted.

Drivers should be on the lookout for temporary “No Parking” signs in the area. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed or towed. If your vehicle is towed from a public street, call 703-228-4252.

On Sunday, September 9, ACPD will assist with road closures for the 2012 Nation’s Triathlon. Due to road closures in Washington, D.C., Chain Bridge Road will be closed to all traffic from 6:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. All northbound Glebe Road traffic will be directed to Route 123.

    Notice: If your car journey calls for a 10 minute trip, plan on 35 minutes. It’s your hard earned tax dollars at work. Embrace it.
