If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking.

Usually, construction materials are delivered at night, preferably early in the morning when traffic is at a minimum.

Government logic.  Fill a hole.  Dig a new one.  Repeat.

Great comments in the comment section.

Last time I visited DC you get get a lot closer to the White House than that.  Such a shame that the Dems are pushing folks away from the people's house.

Lafayette Park has been closed off.  But the perimeter around the WH and the size of the fencing has been expanding for years now, it's not totally a new thing.

They had some folks "jump" the fence a few years back and one made it to a WH door as I recall.  So, more security is not entirely a new thing. 

Man Who Jumped White House Fence Sentenced to 17 Months In Prison : The Two-Way : NPR

A federal judge has sentenced Omar Gonzalez, the man who breached the Secret Service's protection by scaling a fence at the White House and then entering the building, to 17 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.
In March, Gonzalez pleaded guilty to two federal offenses: unlawfully
entering a restricted building or grounds while carrying a deadly or dangerous weapon and one count of assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers or employees.
"Mr. Gonzalez is now paying the price for his foolish decision to jump the fence and run inside the White House," said Acting U.S. Attorney Cohen. "When he finishes his prison term, he will be barred from entering the District of Columbia and must receive psychiatric treatment."
Gonzalez, 43, has been in prison since last September, when he ran onto the grounds of the presidential residence and entered a White House door on a Friday evening. The Army veteran who had served in Iraq was found to be carrying a small folding knife. Prosecutors later said that he had hundreds of rounds of ammunition inside his vehicle, along with hatchets and a machete.
