The security will also affect multiple bus stops in the area, starting 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 30, through noon, April 2.
Roads around the White House, State Department and Convention Center will be closed intermittently throughout the duration of the event.
The Secret Service and Metro have released statements with information regarding specific routes affected and recommended alternatives.
