Security Work Causes Traffic Changes at Library of Congress

Beginning today and continuing for the next three months, traffic patterns around the James Madison Building of the Library of Congress will be adjusted to accomodate work being done on the building’s new perimeter security plan, Architect of the Capitol officials said.

As new security elements are put in place, automobile traffic on Second Street Southeast between

Independence Avenue and C Street will be restricted to to one-way traffic north bound. In addition, the sidewalk adjacent to the Second Street garage entrance of the Madison Building will be closed, and pedestrians will be routed around the construction area. The Second Streeet entrance to the garage will also be closed, and the garage will be accessible through the First Street entrance.
