FILE - This Jan. 17, 2009 file photo shows traffic redirected from Pennsylvania Ave. in downtown Washington, with the Capitol in the background. From a transportation perspective, Inauguration Day won’t be all that different from most regular workdays in the nation’s capital: If you want to get downtown on time, you’re probably better off not driving. Instead, the hundreds of thousands of people spilling into the city are encouraged to travel by rail, bus or bicycle. And no matter what they choose, they’ll eventually end up on foot _ and possibly walking several miles _ to catch a glimpse of President Barack Obama.  (AP Photo/Lawrence Jackson, File)
