WASHINGTON (7News) — If you have missed walking on Pennsylvania Avenue to get a selfie with an iconic view of the White House, your wait is over.
After being blocked to the public during the Trump Administration, Pennsylvania Avenue from 15th to 17th Streets, NW has been reopened.
You can once again walk right up to the fence line of the North Lawn.
And people were already taking advantage of the opportunity on Sunday for the Fourth of July.
Remaining fence around US Capitol to be removed
The remaining fencing that has surrounded the U.S. Capitol since a mob of pro-Trump rioters stormed the building in January is likely to come down as soon as next week, three people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.
National Park Service Rangers and Secret Service officers also removed fencing around Lafayette Park on Sunday. That fencing had been erected more than a year ago.
But in a statement to CNN, the Secret Service noted that “Later this summer a National Park Service paving project will require Pennsylvania Avenue and adjacent areas to be closed.”
