WASHINGTON — Traffic in Georgetown is always a little frightening. But on Halloween night, you might have better luck getting around by broomstick.

D.C. police have announced a list of extensive road closures, parking restrictions and other traffic impacts in the Georgetown on Oct. 31 to accommodate Halloween celebrations.

Starting from 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and lasting until the early morning hours Thursday, traffic on Wisconsin Avenue — from K Street to O Street — and on M Street — from Pennsylvania Avenue to the Key Bridge — is blocked from turning onto side streets.

In addition, several of those side streets in the area are closed except for local traffic, meaning residents, business owners and employees. Watch out for parking restrictions, too.
