WASHINGTON (AP) — Inauguration-goers are complaining about a slow-moving security gate at the National Mall.

Authorities say the orange gate, located between Union Station and the U.S. Capitol, was stalled so a motorcade could pass and barriers could be repositioned.

Stuck spectators vented on Twitter that the line did not move for at least a half-hour and that there were repeated chants of "Orange gate." Some said they were redirected to the blue security gate, a block away.
