The Navy’s flight demonstration squad, the Blue Angels, world-renowned for its aerial displays, is scheduled to perform at the Naval Academy on Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m.
The Commissioning Week show will be the first in Annapolis since 2010. And that’s going to mean traffic tangles in the air as spectators converge on the city to get a glimpse of the team.
Look for rehearsals today as the group arrives along the Severn River between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday before practicing the routine over Annapolis at 2 p.m., reports the Capital Gazette.
Anne Arundel County Police say the event will affect traffic along the following routes: Taylor Avenue, Rowe Boulevard, Route 450 northbound and southbound in the area of the Naval Academy Bridge, Route 648, Greenbury Point Road and Saint Margarets Road.
Commuters in these areas should be aware that some streets will be closed during the event, including the closing of the U.S. Naval Academy Bridge.
Police urge drivers to use caution as increased pedestrian and vehicular traffic is expected for the event. Motorists traveling the above route should expect minor delays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
