Toilets can be seen everywhere. I am estimating that one out of every 90 portable toilets are for disabled people. As of Jan 11 there are no toilets on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Due to security measures, the Archives-Navy Memorial/Penn Quarter Metrorail station on Metros Green and Yellow lines and the Smithsonian Metrorail station on the Blue and Orange lines will be closed all day on Inauguration Day.
I have also heard from Merchants that PIC is possibly closing Farrugut North metro station as well. WMATA will not confirm this.
