WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The nation's capital is hosting the first ever U.S.-Africa Leader's Summit, which is having a huge impact on traffic in downtown D.C.

Road closures began on Sunday around downtown, and will be staggered based on the locations of Summit events around the White House, the State Department and other venues.

With so much police security presence, it's a good idea to plan on taking Metro through Thursday.
