WASHINGTON — It's that time of the year again and this time around there are even more restrictions in place for the Fourth of July on the National Mall and surrounding areas.
That's because President Donald Trump is planning an event at the Lincoln Memorial in addition to the traditional events that have happened in years prior.
For starters, the National Independence Day Parade will step off at 11:45 a.m. on Constitution Avenue NW from 7th Street NW to 17th Street NW. There will be marching bands, military units, floats, drill teams and the whole nine yards, government officials said in a release.
Trump's "Salute to America" at the Lincoln Memorial is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. He is expected to "lead a celebration of America's military with music, military demonstrations and flyovers," according to a release. Gates will open at 3:30 p.m. (More on that in a minute)
The annual "A Capital Fourth" happens on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building at 8 p.m.
Then, the fireworks display is slated to begin at 9:07 p.m. This year, the fireworks are being launched from West Potomac Park and behind the Lincoln Memorial.

Scheduled track work on the Blue and Yellow lines continues; free shuttle buses replace trains between Reagan National Airport and Van Dorn Street & Huntington stations.
Due to large crowds, bicycles and large coolers are not permitted after 2:00 p.m.
Due to changes in this year’s festivities, the Arlington Memorial Bridge will be closed to both vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The Memorial Bridge will be cut off completely — even to pedestrians. That means no taking Metro to Arlington National Cemetery and walking to the National Mall to watch fireworks.
The National Mall side of Smithsonian station will become "entry only" after 9 p.m. to accommodate returning crowds. The Independence Avenue entrance of Smithsonian station will be available for both entry and exit throughout the entire day.
Due to the Foggy Bottom station's proximity to the Lincoln Memorial, it may become "entry only" prior to festivities and "exit only" afterward, WMATA said in a release.
Parking: Free at all Metro-operated facilities.
Fares: Off-Peak fares will be in effect all day.

Watercraft restrictions on the Potomac River
South of the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge to the Arlington Memorial Bridge will be a No Anchorage Zone.
There will be a designated anchorage zone north of the 14th Street Bridge on the west side of the Potomac River (Virginia shore side); this zone will be just north of the entrance to the Pentagon Lagoon to south of the Arlington Memorial Bridge.
There will be a watercraft safety zone north of the 14th Street Bridge on the east side of the Potomac River (Washington, DC side); this zone will be just north of the entrance to the Pentagon Lagoon to south of the Arlington Memorial Bridge. This means no boating, no anchoring.
Watercrafts will be allowed to anchor outside of the channel north of the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge and south of the 14th Street Bridge.
There may be intermittent travel restrictions between the 14th Street Bridge and the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge between the hours of 8:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
