HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Highway Administration says nearly 2,500 motorcyclists are making their way into northern Virginia from western Maryland.

The agency says participants in America’s 9/11 Ride entered Virginia on U.S. 15 around 2:40 p.m. Friday after crossing three Maryland counties on interstates 68 and 70. They left Shanksville, Pa., Friday morning.

The rest of Friday’s route takes the riders through Leesburg, Va., and ends in Arlington, Va.

Police say they expect a convoy 15 miles long. They are temporarily closing eastbound entrance ramps to let the group pass by.

The bikers will visit the Pentagon Saturday morning before heading north to New York.
