For in-person attendees of Day 1 of the Fall 2023 FPAW meeting, please take the following information into consideration:
"MITRE Global Security Services is encouraging MITRE McLean-based employees who plan to drive to the campus on Tuesday to consider alternate routes as a large pro-Israel demonstration in Washington D.C. makes traffic congestion more likely.
Organizers of the March for Israel are expecting hundreds of thousands of people to convene on the National Mall. Fairfax County Police anticipate hundreds of buses will be dropping off passengers at the McLean Metro Station when many commuters normally drive to work. To avoid the congestion, GSS recommends that drivers enter the MITRE campus from Anderson Road (adjacent to Safeway) rather than Dolley Madison Boulevard (VA-123)."
Note: the Anderson Road entrance will take you directly to the E parking lot and/or MITRE 2 garage, which is where you want to park for the meeting before heading into MITRE 2 to sign in with security.
