Residents Asked To Report Expired Signs

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is in the process of removing the thousands of “Emergency – No Parking” signs posted in the downtown area for the Presidential Inauguration. In the days leading up to Inauguration, DDOT crews posted more than 40,000 temporary signs in pre-determined no parking zones for Inaugural events and tour bus parking. Most of the parking restrictions were in effect from 9 pm on Monday, January 19 through 6 pm on January 20.

DDOT crews are now working to remove the signs as quickly as possible. Residents can help by reporting blocks where multiple expired “Emergency – No Parking” signs are still posted. Residents should call the Mayor’s Call Center at 311 and DDOT will dispatch a crew to the location to remove the signs.
