Capitol Police Announce Road Closures Ahead of ‘March for Life’

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Capitol Police have announced Capitol Complex road closures to accommodate the annual “March for Life” on the National Mall.

Thousands of anti-abortion activists and marchers are expected to converge on the National Mall Thursday and Friday for a series of events.

This year, in order to mark the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which it concluded the U.S. Constitution does not confer a right to abortion, marchers will proceed from the National Mall to the Capitol and then conclude their march in front of the Supreme Court building.

Ahead of the planned march, the U.S. Capitol Police will temporarily close First Street from Constitution Avenue, NE, to Independence Avenue, SE between approximately 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 19, and approximately 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20.


The USCP will also temporarily close the following roads between approximately 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20:

East Capitol Street between First Street and Second Street


Maryland Avenue between Constitution Avenue, NE, and First Street, NE

Washington Avenue between Independence Avenue, SW, and C Street, SW

The USCP will temporarily close the following roads between approximately 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20:

Independence Avenue between Third Street, SW, and Second Street, SE

Second Street between Constitution Avenue, NE, and Independence Avenue, SE


East Capitol Street between First Street and Third Street
