Changes on the roads, elsewhere for Labor Day

Monday - 9/1/2014, 3:34am  ET

WASHINGTON -- On Monday, we honor the nation's working men and women. And Labor Day brings changes to the daily commute and the regular errands:

  • Banks, government offices and courts are closed throughout the area.

  • Post offices are closed and there's no regular mail delivery.

  • If you're on the road Monday morning or evening, HOV restrictions are lifted in Virginia on Interstates 66, 95 and 395.

  • Rush-hour restrictions are lifted in D.C. So are residential parking restrictions; you don't need to feed the parking meters either.

  • There is no MARC or VRE rail service Monday.

  • Metrobus and Metrorail are on a Sunday schedule.

  • Trash picks in most jurisdictions slip a day this week.
