WASHINGTON (AP) - The 2016 Nuclear Security Summit being held in Washington this week means potential traffic headaches for anyone trying to travel near the city’s convention center.

At a press conference Monday at police headquarters, Assistant Chief Lamar Green said anyone traveling around the convention center where the summit is being held Thursday and Friday should expect street closures and detours. Street closures begin Tuesday evening with additional closures going into effect Wednesday. The closures will last through Saturday at noon.

Green said there would be additional intermittent street closures as a result of motorcades.

In addition, yellow and green line Metro trains will not stop at the convention center stop and a number of bus routes will be detoured around the area.

The summit was also held in Washington in 2010.
