4:17 p.m.: Per Georgetown Voice, "Majority of cars going by honk in approval. Few negative comments heard so far."

4:08 p.m.:  Per the AP, "Adam Chadwick of New York City is visiting Occupy D.C. after participating in Occupy Wall Street protests in recent weeks. He says the interactions between police and protesters are more peaceful in Washington. He says there's an "air of fear" in New York.

3:51 p.m.: Meanwhile, per the AP, "At least 175 people were arrested in New York, many for blocking streets near the New York Stock Exchange. One man was taken into custody for throwing liquid, possibly vinegar, into the faces of several police officers, authorities said. Police in Los Angeles arrested 23 people."  

3:41 p.m.: Per DCist, Police boats in water, just in case I suppose.

3:38 p.m.: Post reports that on the Rosslyn side of the KeyBridge, traffic is moving in both directions with no problems.

3:18 p.m.: Per Segraves, protesters now on M St in Georgetown. M St outbound closed between 24th and Wisconsin.

3:10 p.m.: Marchers now on M Street.

3:06 p.m.: The group of about 100 is approaching Pennsylvania Ave. and headed to Georgetown.

3:01 p.m.:  Segraves reports that traffic is holding up the protesters/marches.

2:45 p.m.: Compared to what's happening in L.A. and New York, what we have here so far is, well, there's no comparison.

2:38 p.m.: ABC7's Mark Segraves is reporting that protesters are walking down K Street and are on their way to the Key Bridge.

The Occupy D.C. movement is on the move.

At 2:30, organizers are planning to march from their home base at McPherson Square to the Key Bridge, connecting Georgetown and Rosslyn.

Authorities are already setting up on the bridge.

Prepare for traffic delays all day.
