Regular traffic rules Friday
Friday is the Emancipation Day holiday in the District, and the city's government offices will be closed. But the District Department of Transportation points out that the regular weekday traffic patterns will be in effect.
That means that on 16th Street NW, Connecticut Avenue NW, Canal Road NW and Independence Avenue on Capitol Hill -- the roads that have reversible lanes for rush hour -- drivers should follow their normal commuting pattern.
Parking meter payments will not be required, except for those in the area around Nationals Park, where a game is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Friday. The meters around the stadium have special rules. They will be operating from three hours before game time to three hours afterward, says DDOT spokeswoman Karyn LeBlanc.
[In addition to the holiday suspension of parking meter enforcement, the Department of Public works will not enforce the restrictions on residential parking, and rush hour lane parking restrictions. It also will suspend towing of abandoned vehicles.]
