I’ve never heard of the Zoo closing for crowds before. Wild. I may or may not have used the term Zoosanity on twitter.
From twitter @NationalZoo:
“We closed at 5 pm today due to capacity spring crowds. Parking is difficult this time of year, so take Metro if you’re able!”
“Traffic Congestion: 2600-3500 Conn Ave NW (Zoo Area) heavy pedestrian traffic due to early closure of the Zoo/expect delays”
“Woodley Park : Entry to the station from street level maybe restricted due to crowding. Customers may utilize Cleveland Park.”
Update 6:20pm from @WMATA:
“Woodley Park entrance no longer being restricted, down escalator has been turned back on. (6:18p) ^BA”
