All roads leading to and from the Capitol will be closed to vehicles starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in anticipation of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.
Expect tours of the Capitol to also be affected. Public and staff-led tours will be suspended at noon Tuesday. The Capitol Visitor Center will also close at that time, but those with gallery passes may still enter through the main entrance.
U.S. Capitol Police will lift traffic restrictions at the conclusion of the event. Obama will begin the address at 9 p.m.
