    News4's Pat Collins reports from the Washington Convention Center, where police will shut down streets in all directions for the two-day Nuclear Security Summit, impacting drivers and people who live and walk in that area. (Published Wednesday, March 30, 2016)

    Leaders from dozens of countries are in D.C. this week for the Nuclear Security Summit -- which means the District is now experiencing some major transportation changes.

    Heads of state and other international leaders are meeting to discuss how to stop nuclear terrorism around the world. As a result, the Secret Service is stepping up security, restricting parking and closing roads.

    Green and Yellow Line Metro trains are now bypassing the Mt. Vernon Square-Convention Center station through Friday evening.

    Many streets around the Washington Convention Center are or will be closed at some point, including portions of New York and Massachusetts avenues, and K and M streets. 

    Make sure to give yourself extra time to get around town. 

    Local and federal law enforcement officials announced security plans Monday for the Nuclear Security Summit, with last week's attacks in Brussels bringing more concerns to the forefront.

    The summit runs through Saturday.
