      The Washington Nationals are hosting The Boston Red Sox this afternoon at 3:05 pm at Nationals Stadium, 1500 Block South Capitol Street SE.  The traffic flow for those attending the game is expected to increase between the hours of 1:30 pm and 3:40 pm. These times will coincide with the evening commute, delays are possible.  Traffic is expected to be heavier than normal on the following roads prior to and throughout the game due to rush hour.  SE/SW Freeway in the E/B and W/B Directions, 395 N and S, 295 N and S, New York Avenue NW and NE inbound and outbound.  There will also be an increase in traffic inside the 3rd Street Tunnel N/B and S/B as well as both directions on the Suitland Parkway SE.  M Street SE and Maine Avenue SW will also be more heavily traveled.  All of the roadways around the stadium will also see an increase of vehicle and pedestrian traffic.  This includes South Capitol Street as well as The South Capitol Street (Douglass Bridge) in both directions.   The smaller roadways that will be affected are N Street, 1st Street, Potomac Avenue and Half Street.  The traffic flow for those exiting the game is expected to increase between the hours of 5:30 pm and 7:00 pm.   The Metro Stations that are expected to see an increase in ridership are the Navy Yard and The Waterfront Stations on the Green Line and the Capitol South and Federal Center Metro Stations on the Orange lines.  DC and Metro Transit Police will have a stronger than normal presence in the area.  DDOT Traffic Control Officers will also be in the immediate area of Nationals Stadium to assist folks with traffic.  EH
