Major street closures for NATO Summit this week; crews install fencing near White House

In preparation for Tuesday’s NATO Summit in D.C., crews from a contractor installed tall, latticed steel fences on the sidewalk along the Ellipse near the White House.

A small forklift unloaded pallets of the fencing onto the sidewalk on Monday morning while crews dragged and then assembled the fencing.

Most of the security fencing along the sidewalk isn’t blocking access to the sidewalk. It’s running parallel to the sidewalk to prevent someone from climbing over it. So pedestrians still have access to the sidewalk.

Fencing was already in place around the Mellon Auditorium and Washington Convention Center, where the summit will take place from July 9-11.



A number of roadway closures come into effect on Monday near Mellon Auditorium and White House and the Washington Convention Center.
