D.C. street sweeping ends Friday
D.C. residents can rejoice. The District is suspending street cleaning for the season starting Friday.
Parking restrictions due to daytime street sweeping will be lifted and drivers won't have to do the dance of moving their cars on street-cleaning days. D.C. officials said the work is discontinued during the winter due to safety concerns. (One of the dangers is that the water used to control dust can freeze). It also allows crews to shift their focus to leaf removal, which will begin Nov. 8 and last through Jan. 15, and snow removal.
Sweeping will resume in the spring. Through the winter overnight street cleaning will continue on major roads, such as Constitution and Pennsylvania.
