The National Park Service has closed Washington’s National Mall to the general public as part of greatly intensified security ahead of inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

The closure started Friday morning. It will remain in force at least through Thursday, the day after the inauguration, the National Park Service said in a statement.

The Secret Service requested the closing. Thousands of National Guard troops are deployed in the nation’s capital as part of extraordinary security, after rioters overran the Capitol building Jan. 6 as lawmakers were certifying results in Biden’s election win.
