(Washington, DC) As it does every year, DPW has temporarily suspended daytime street cleaning from January 5 to March 12, 2004. During this time, "No Parking/Street Cleaning" restrictions will also be lifted in residential areas that normally have weekly street sweeping. Residents and visitors who park along posted, alternate-side, daytime street sweeping routes will not be required to move their cars on street-sweeping days during the sweeper hiatus.
However, overnight contract sweeping scheduled for major arterials (such as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Constitution, Independence Avenues, and others) will take place as usual all winter, with the attendant parking ban during sweeping hours. This is street maintenance administered by the Department of Transportation (DDOT) to keep DC's largest and most heavily used thoroughfares clean. Motorists are asked not to park in these areas during the posted overnight hours. Enforcement is handled by MPD along these major routes.
