(Updated at 10:20 p.m.) With a 7 p.m. curfew and protesters marching on M Street NW, D.C. police are blocking lanes of the Key Bridge heading towards Georgetown.
Stores and restaurants are boarded up along M Street, in anticipation of another night of protests in the District.
A group of peaceful protesters was heading in the direction of Georgetown around 8:15 p.m., but started heading back on Pennsylvania Avenue after encountering a police roadblock, according to reports on Twitter.
Some businesses in Arlington have also been boarded up or closed early, including the Crate and Barrel in Clarendon and a CVS store in Rosslyn, as seen in the photo gallery above.
Protesters turn left going back into downtown via Pennsylvania Ave. Large police presence guarding Georgetown motivates the move it looks like. pic.twitter.com/YrUSOzEq7k

M Street in Georgetown as you’ve never seen it. A soft closure was implemented between Key Bridge and Rock Creek after nights of looting, vandalism. pic.twitter.com/oU7FgNYB8H
