If there’s one thing people dislike about living in Northern Virginia is the traffic. Where the new arena is located is near the Ronald Reagan National Airport so not only are you dealing with pregame traffic, you’re dealing with traffic to and from the airport, traffic from people getting to and leaving work and traffic for people going out on the town of Old Town Alexandria.
So if you plan on going to a Caps game when this new arena opens take the metro. And leave early. Granted the traffic in DC is not much better. No matter what there’s always something going on in the city. If not a game it’s a show or a concert or people just want to get dinner or sight see.
And if you try to speed in DC if you don’t get pulled over you’ll still get a ticket through a camera that can catch you. Maryland the drivers aren’t the best and traffic to and from FedEx Field for Commanders games is a nightmare.
Traffic to Nats games depends on the opponent but now with Capital One Arena no longer being home to the Caps, getting to Nationals Park and Audi Field will be the easier venue to get to.
