Stanley Cup Final Forces Street Closures

The Washington Capitals’ run to the Stanley Cup final is forcing the temporary closure of several streets near the Capital One Arena.

The Metropolitan Police Department said that beginning Tuesday night, there will be no vehicles allowed on the following streets:

  • F St. NW from 5th to 7th St. NW
  • 6th St. NW from E St. to H St. NW

Local residents and monthly pass holders may be able to access 6th Street, police said.

The closures will kick in on Tuesday at 11 p.m. and extend until 3 p.m. on June 11.

If necessary, the Capitals would host Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final on June 10. Game 7 would be on June 13 in Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Knights won Game 1 of the series Monday night, 6-4. The Capitals will host Game 3 on Saturday night.
