D.C. risks having a downtown traffic meltdown when the Nuclear Security Summit rolls into town next week.

International heads of state and government officials will convene at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center between March 31 and April 1 for the fourth and final Nuclear Security Summit, according to the White House.

Street closures around the White House and the Convention Center begin to take effect on March 29 and last until April 2. Additionally, the Mt. Vernon Square Metro stop will be closed between March 30 and April 1.

“The closure is necessary because Mt Vernon Square Station falls within the secure perimeter for the summit, a designated National Special Security Event that is expected to bring together heads of state from dozens of countries,” Metro writes in a press release.

Here’s a full list of the closures you can expect to see next week:
