Reminder: Street Sweeping Resumes ‪March 1‬  

Please see below for a reminder from Commissioner Thomas


Good Morning Friends and Neighbors:

Please see the notice below reminding us that residential street sweeping resumes on this Thursday, March 1st.  It’s been nice not having to remember to move the move the cars on Wednesday and Thursday mornings but, as “Dandy” Don Meridith used to sing at the end of Monday Night Football games, “the party’s over.”

P.S.If you don’t know who “Dandy” Don Meridith was, ask your father or just Google him.

Residential Mechanical Street Sweeping to Resume March 1

Motorists are urged to obey signs restricting parking


The Department of Public Works (DPW) will resume residential mechanical street sweeping on Thursday, March 1. To ensure streets are swept thoroughly, motorists are asked to obey the signs posted with the days of the week and hours of the day when parking restrictions will be enforced. The fine for violating this restriction is $45. Signs posted along street sweeping routes indicate that the program runs from March 1 through October 31.

“Our street sweepers, many of whom call the District home, take great pride in keeping our city clean and beautiful,” said DPW Director Chris Shorter. “In the last fiscal year, DPW’s crews removed upwards of 4,300 tons of litter from our streets.”

To remind motorists of the restrictions, DPW will issue warnings between Thursday, March 1 and Friday, March 9, 2017 to vehicles parked during the sweeping periods.

Parked vehicles may be towed to allow the sweepers access to the curb lane. Generally, parking is prohibited for two hours (9:30 am to 11:30 am or 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm) while sweeping is underway.

As a reminder, District drivers can now receive immediate notification if their vehicle has been towed, relocated or booted. To find out how to enroll in DPW’s Tow and Boot Alert Program, please click here.

DPW provides essential city services in two distinct program areas: environmental services/solid waste management and parking enforcement. Both contribute to making District streets and public spaces clean, safe, attractive and accessible for all residents, businesses, commuters and visitors.
