Parking enforcement, street sweeping take a holiday

The observation of Emancipation Day in the District Friday means parking enforcement and street sweeping take the day off.

The Department of Public Works says street sweeping will resume Monday. Parking enforcement, including tickets for expired meters, residential parking and rush-hour violations, will resume Saturday.

Trash and recycling collection scheduled for Friday will move to Saturday, D.C. officials said.

Commuter services plan to run normal schedules. However, Metro will begin a major shutdown of the eastern end of the Orange Line Friday night to perform track work. Also Friday, expect parking restrictions and street closings to begin for the meetings this weekend of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.
