There will be cannons: Herbert Inauguration will impact Capitol Hill Traffic & Noise

State Capitol officials want residents to know that cannons will hold a practice salute at 8:30 AM with the multi-gun salute at 11:00 AM. Don’t be alarmed by the noise.

Traffic around Capitol will be one-way from 6AM – 4PM

State Capitol officials have notified the Community Council that, due to the governor’s inauguration on January 7, traffic around the Capitol will flow in only one direction: clockwise (when facing north) between 6AM and 4PM. Parking will be restricted. Residents should take precautions for additional parking in neighborhoods that day and expect additional traffic to and from Capitol Hill.
