From a press release:
“Beginning Monday, February 27, 2017, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will implement a new parking meter rate schedule in the Penn Quarter and Chinatown neighborhoods. This is the second quarterly parking meter rate adjustment as part of the Penn Quarter-Chinatown pilot project to improve parking availability through demand-based pricing.
The study area includes on-street parking spaces bounded by H Street NW, 3rd Street NW, E Street NW and 11th Street NW. The pilot aims to reduce the time needed to find parking, improve turnover of high-demand parking spaces, provide better parking information to motorists, and reduce congestion by adjusting prices based on observed demand for parking on a block-by-block basis.
Parking meter rates on individual block faces in this area will range from $1.50 to $3.25. As with the previous price adjustment, the rates on each block face will vary by time: weekday morning, weekday midday, weekday evening, and Saturday.
The table below provides a summary of the number of block faces that will have quarterly demand-based meter rate adjustments. Blocks identified for adjustments are shown in the figure below: (more…)
