Dupont – Logan – U Street

Snow Emergency Takes Effect at 9:30 a.m.; Move Your Car?


First, kudos to DDoT for communicating via Facebook and Twitter (DDOTDC).

The city will implement a snow emergency at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow (Friday). This means you may need to move your car (full listing of streets affected are at DDoT).

For example, 16th Street NW is a snow emergency route. Routes affected in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area include:

  • Connecticut Avenue NW from K to Western
  • Florida Avenue – H Street NE to 9th Street NW
  • Florida Avenue NW – U Street to 22nd Street
  • Massachusetts Avenue NW – Western Avenue to North Capitol Street
  • Mt. Vernon Place NW – Massachusetts Avenue to New York Avenue
  • Rhode Island Avenue – Connecticut Avenue NW to Eastern Avenue NE
  • U Street NW – 9th Street to Florida Avenue
  • 9th Street – Southwest Freeway to Florida Avenue NW
  • 15th Street NW – K Street to Massachusetts Avenue
  • 16th Street NW – H Street to Eastern Avenue
  • 15th Street NW – K Street to Massachusetts Avenue
  • 16th Street NW – H Street to Eastern Avenue

A snow emergency means that motorists may not park vehicles along corridors designated as snow emergency routes which are posted with red and white “Snow Emergency Route” signs. Illegally parked vehicles are subject to a $250 fine and additional fees for towing and storage at an impoundment lot. To locate a towed vehicle, call 202-727-5000. For a listing of fees and a map of the snow emergency routes, visit the DDOT web site at http://www.ddot.dc.gov/snow.

The District has identified parking spaces for some residents who are unable to find on-street parking at the DC USA retail center located at the corner of 14th Street and Park Road in northwest. The entrance and exit gates will be lifted at 10 p.m. on Friday evening and people may park their car in the lot for free throughout the weekend. The entrance arm will drop again at 5 a.m. on Monday morning. All vehicles must be moved back out of the lot by noon on Monday in order to avoid any charges.
