Because of the impending Snowmageddon, the D.C. government will close at 2 p.m. Friday, and all government agencies will be closed Saturday. Essential personnel still will have to report.
All Department of Parks and Recreation centers and programs also will stop at 2 p.m. and remain closed through at least Saturday.
The District also has implemented its snow emergency plan, meaning all cars must be moved from marked snow emergency routes. The parking restrictions are expected to remain in place through the weekend.
