DC to lift extended rush-hour parking limits

WASHINGTON — As Metro ends its initial round of 24/7 work zones next week, rush-hour parking rules will change across much of the District.

The District Department of Transportation last year extended the parking restrictions by 30 minutes in each the morning and afternoon rush hours along key corridors using an emergency rule-making process. The parking restrictions will revert to the old hours of 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. starting Monday, June 26, DDOT spokesman Terry Owens told WTOP in an email.

“Over the next week DDOT will notify the public and begin the process of removing the temporary signs that indicated the longer hours,” Owens said.

There had been some consideration given in the department to maintaining the restrictions beyond the end of Metro’s initial 13 months of round-the-clock work zones, given the significant number of riders who have turned away from Metro during the work and ongoing road construction projects like long-term work on Beach Drive.
