Convention Center 18-Wheel Meltdown

Trucks all the way down the 900 block of M:
Normally, the trucks are supposed stand by farther out New York Avenue. This time they did it under the M Street tunnel. It essentially closed off the eastbound lane of the 700-800 block of M Street.
A police utility vehicle was forced to do the traffic equivalent of go up the down staircase (not that he stopped, or anything): And some poor little sports car must have been late for something really important.
The editor just bets that the traffic management types at the convention center were blindsided by this. He would just love to hear the phone calls to the people organizing the trucks. Then again, it's probably just bleep sounds.
