Streets Closed for the CAPS even when They’re Playing on the Road because the Red is a Rocking!!

“Dear PoPville,

First, let me say that although I am not a hockey fan, I AM very excited for the Capitals! I just have questions. Starting yesterday, MPD had blocked off 6th St NW from H to E St, and F St NW from 5th to 7th. My understanding is there isn’t even a game here until Saturday, so… what is all this stuff? Will it be like this until the hockey is over (which I hope will end with a celebratory parade)?”

It’s cause we have the greatest fans – the scene outside Capital One Arena Last night (where there are viewing parties):

From MPD:

“The 2018 Stanley Cup Final, began on May 28, 2018, and the series has the potential to last until June 13, 2018.

The Metropolitan Police Department wishes to advise the public of street closures in conjunction with the 2018 Stanley Cup Final:

In order to facilitate this event, there will be no vehicular traffic in the following areas on May 29, 2018, from approximately 11:00 pm until approximately 3:00 pm, on June 11, 2018:

F Street, NW from 5th Street to 7th Street, NW

6th Street, NW from E Street to G Street, NW

Limited traffic will be accessible only to local residents and monthly parking pass holders in the following area:

6th Street, NW from E Street to H Street, NW

500 block of G Street, NW

The public should expect parking restrictions in the area and should be guided by the posted emergency no parking signage. All vehicles that are parked in the area and in violation of the emergency no parking signs will be ticketed and towed.”
