Walter Reed Skydivers Could Mean Friday Traffic

Walter Reed National Military Medical CenterTwo skydivers at a Military Medical Center event might cause traffic issues on Rockville Pike on Friday.

The skydivers will be part of a barbecue and concert appreciation day for staff on the Walter Reed and Naval Support Activity Bethesda campus.

At about 11:30 a.m., the skydivers will land on the front lawn near the Navy Exchange, according to the NSAB Public Affairs office.

NSAB warned county government that could lead to slower traffic in front of the base due to rubbernecking.

The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. From 9 a.m. until the concert is over, the gate directly across from the Medical Center Metro station will be closed to vehicle traffic and open to bicycles and pedestrians, which could also cause traffic issues.
