We’ll be following along with today’s protest on our live blog.
Protesters are saying they’ve chosen Key Bridge to protest “the deterioration of our public infrastructure and public services.” This morning, John Lisle, a spokesman for the District Department of Transportation, told the Dr. Gridlock blog this morning that the Key Bridge is no longer structurally deficient.
Protesters say they will be making an effort to stay off the busy thoroughfare during the protest, which should last from 2:30 to 6 p.m., but the plans have been met with mixed reactions from the Washington public.
