Updated to add Council member Cheh’s June 30th constituent newsletter and DDOT’s enforcement bulletin.
Here’s the news from Ward 3 Council member Mary Cheh’s Facebook page:
There is a significant update to last week’s #Ward3 newsletter:
DDOT has announced that all rush-hour parking restrictions are in effect on Connecticut Avenue NW and that full ticketing enforcement will resume effective immediately (today’s announcement is available here).
When last week’s newsletter was published, DDOT and DPW had agreed to cease ticketing until the two agencies could come to an agreement on whether to conduct enforcement or not, but now that a decision has been reached and ticketing has resumed, it is important to adhere to the restrictions.
Please help spread the word to neighbors and visitors!
Cheh later sent a constituent email with the parking enforcement update, and this addition: “It has been exasperating dealing with DDOT and the Department of Public Works (DPW) on this matter because they have issued conflicting advice and given us a very short turnaround time on what their rules will be.”
Short turnaround, indeed. This is the advisory from DDOT, which published at 10:49 a.m., shortly after the morning rush hour ended, and only a few hours before afternoon rush-hour enforcement would begin.
“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced that beginning June 30, 2021, all rush-hour parking restrictions are in effect on Connecticut Avenue NW and that enforcement will resume.
“The rush-hour reversible lanes will remain suspended.”
Here’s more on the reversible lanes, which were set to go back into operation on June 1. That did not happen, after interventions by the Council member and other local officials.
