The Coast Guard announced the establishment of a temporary security zone for Jan. 20-22 in designated waters of Washington, D.C., for the presidential inauguration.

At certain times during this period, security zone enforcement might limit or prohibit navigation by commercial and recreational waterway users.

The security zone will include the Potomac River from the Francis Scott Key Bridge (U.S. Route 29) down to a position approximately 350 yards south of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. The security zone will continue west on the District of Columbia/Virginia shoreline to a position near Washington Sailing Marina and east on the District of Columbia shoreline near the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Marina, including the Georgetown Channel Tidal Basin. The security zone also includes the Anacostia River from the 11th Street Bridge (I-695) down to its confluence with the Potomac River.
