WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard is establishing temporary security zones in the Potomac and Anacostia rivers for the State of the Union address.

Boaters may be limited or prohibited from navigating along parts of the rivers in the zones from 4 p.m. Tuesday until midnight.

The security zone includes the Potomac River south from the Francis Scott Key Bridge and the Anacostia River from the 11th Street Bridge to its confluence with the Potomac. The security zone will also include the Georgetown Channel Tidal Basin.

The Captain of the Port of Baltimore must authorize entry into or remaining in the security zone. Vessels already at berth, mooring, or anchor at 4 p.m. are not required to depart the security zone.
