Alexandria Police Urge Residents to Prepare for Inauguration Day


The Alexandria Police Department is proud to be part of this historic Inauguration Day.  Residents choosing to take part in the day’s events can expect congestion, delays and detours. Alexandria Police would like to remind residents:

• No privately-owned vehicles (POV) are allowed access to Washington, DC, directly from Alexandria.
• Please plan ahead.  Visit www.wmata.com for transit schedules and options.
