Army 10-Miler Road Closures

Just got this from
The Arlington County Police Department will close several streets near the Pentagon on Sunday, October 5, for the 24th Annual Army 10-Miler race. The race begins at 8 a.m. on Washington Boulevard, crosses the Potomac River into the District of Columbia, and ends in the Pentagon South Parking Lot.

The following roads in Arlington will be affected:

*Washington Boulevard (Route 27), between I-395 and Memorial Bridge, will be closed in both directions at 5:30 a.m.
*Columbia Pike, east of Joyce Street will be closed at 5:30 a.m.
*I-395 HOV southbound lanes will be closed at 5:30 a.m.
*S. Eads Street, from Army Navy Drive into the Pentagon/Northbound I-395 HOV lanes, will be closed at 4:30 a.m.

All of the roads should be reopened by noon.

In addition, access to the Pentagon Reservation will be restricted to “Authorized Vehicles Only” from 4:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Pentagon Employees must park at the North Parking Lots using the Boundary Channel Drive access points.

Runners, spectators and support personnel are encouraged to use Metro. The Pentagon and Pentagon City stations on the Blue and Yellow Lines are located within walking distance of the start and finish lines, and Metro will run extra service for the race. From 6 a.m. until the race begins, Blue Line trains will operate at 7.5 minute intervals, instead of every 15 minutes. The supplemental service will resume at the conclusion of the race, from approximately 11:15 a.m. to about 12:40 p.m.
