District to lift snow emergency Tuesday evening

By Washington Post editors

The District will lift the snow emergency currently in effect at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Parking restrictions along snow emergency routes will no longer be in effect once the ban is lifted.

I just called DDOT to report an inconsistency between a Snow Emergency sign and the map on their website (the road in question is Harewood Rd, NE - there are Snow Emergency signs but it's not on the map), and they said that the snow emergency has been lifted. This is about 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday, 2/16. Any updates on that?

The DDOT wesbite, on their "Snow Alerts" page, under the heading "a list of our most recent snow alerts" has an article entitled "Snow Emergency to End Saturday, February 13" and no subsequent articles stating the Emergency has been reinstated. Nonetheless, $250 tickets were issued yesterday to parkers who simply relied on the District's "up-to-date" website. Seems terribly unjust!

So I assume that means they will have all the snow cleared by then? If the streets are still missing a lane, then there's still an "emergency", sorry we're all sick of it but it needs to stay in effect until the roads are passable.

Thank goodness! At least now, I don't have to worry about rushing home to find a parking space.
