D.C. closing streets for weekend events

Four events in the District over the weekend will require street closings.

Race for the Cure

Closings will occur along the route for the Race for the Cure on Saturday morning. The race, which starts at 8 a.m., begins on the Washington Monument grounds. Then the runners and walkers go north on 15th Street to Constitution Avenue NW, then west on Constitution to 22nd Street NW, were they make a U-turn and come back east on Constitution to 21st Street NW and go north to Virginia Avenue NW.

They head southeast on Virginia Avenue back to Constitution Avenue, then on to 14th Street NW, where they turn south to Jefferson Drive SW and go east on Jefferson to Seventh Street SW. There they turn south to Independence Avenue and on to Fifth Street SW, where they disband. (This is near the National Air and Space Museum.)

See more details about this and other events that affect traffic and transit in my earlier posting, The weekend and beyond.

Taste of Georgetown

The Taste of Georgetown food festival is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Wisconsin Avenue NW will be closed between M and K streets.

Post Hunt

Post Hunt, a puzzle-solving event sponsored by The Washington Post, starts at noon Sunday in Franklin Square Park. This will close the 1300 block of I (Eye) Street NW from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

Ford’s Theater Annual Gala

The Ford’s Theatre Annual Gala will close 10th Street NW between E and F streets, the block in front of the theater, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
