Expect crowds in D.C. for Cherry Blossom Festival events, a Nationals exhibition on Friday and NCAA basketball on Saturday.
Commuters are adapting to many bus changes. Meanwhile, the D.C. region begins a very active week for sports events and the Cherry Blossom Festival.
With the major festival events beginning, Metro has temporarily suspended its weekend track work program.
Because the festival brings extra crowding, Metro won't be doing any major weekend track work until late April.
When the clouds clear later this week, watch for the effects of daylight saving on your commutes. Also, check on some upcoming road and rail work.
Road work plans are limited, but Metro crews will work on all lines. Sports activities are highlighted by the home opener for D.C. United.
Fans approaching from I-395 for RFK's Lot 8 will need to detour this season. For Saturday's home opener, Orange and Blue Line riders should be aware of Metro's track work plan.
The focal point of the D.C. area's travel week will be the winter storm forecast to develop Tuesday into Wednesday, but road and rail work is still scheduled.
Despite the chill, parades are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to check the schedule of Metrorail disruptions.
Not a bad week for travelers in the D.C. area, with limited work schedules on the roads and rails
