Road Closures to Clear Path for Rolling Thunder

This really can be a huge pain in the ass, because these guys are loud and EVERYWHERE. I’m not at all angry about the Triumph we saw yesterday, though.

ARLINGTON, Va. — The annual Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally returns to the nation’s capital this Memorial Day weekend, and authorities are advising motorists to be prepared for road closures and other delays.

The Virginia Department of Transportation estimates that 2,000 motorcyclists, escorted by state and local police, will travel Sunday morning up Interstate 95 from Prince William County to the Pentagon. Another 2,000 motorcyclists are expected on Interstate 66 from Manassas.

At noon Sunday, the riders are expected to depart the Pentagon for Washington.

Arlington County Police say (Route 27) will be closed from I-395 to the Memorial Bridge from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

In Fairfax City, police will close roads in and around the Patriot Harley Davidson dealership Sunday morning in support of the associated “Ride of the Patriots” rally.
