All courts, offices, human services facilities, libraries and schools will be closed. Parking meters will not be enforced.
Pools will be open on a holiday schedule. Arlington Transit will also operate on a holiday schedule. Metro will be operating on a holiday schedule, but will be boosting rail service due to the July 4 crowds.
