(Washington, DC) Residents and visitors are reminded there is a snow emergency in effect in the District. All vehicles must be moved immediately from snow emergency routes.
Snow emergency routes are posted with red and white snow emergency route signs. Parking is banned on these routes to allow unimpeded curb-to-curb salting or plowing.
Illegally parked vehicles are subject to a $250 fine and additional fees for towing and storage at an impoundment lot. The Department of Public Works will no longer relocate vehicles in the neighborhoods. To locate a towed vehicle, call (202) 541-6083.
The District has identified parking spaces at the DC USA rental center located at the corner of 14th Street and Park Road in northwest for people who are unable to find on-street parking. The entrance to the garage is located on Park Road. Parking is free in the garage until noon tomorrow, Saturday, February 13.
Residents are also reminded to clean sidewalks and are being asked to assist with the removal of snow around fire hydrants, catch basins, and drains around properties.
