A repaving project will close all roads and walkways within the Ellipse, south of the White house, starting Saturday for just under two weeks.
The closure runs through Wednesday, Aug. 21.
Pedestrians and cyclists can use nearby Constitution or Pennsylvania avenues as detours, the National Park Service said Friday.
The south grounds of the White House will still be visible from 16th Street and Constitution Avenue Northwest, the park service said.
