From DDOT:

The 2012 residential street sweeping season begins Thursday, March 1, announced the DC Department of Public Works today. Signs are posted that identify the days of the week and hours of the day when parking restrictions will be in effect so the sweepers can clean the streets effectively. Parking enforcement of residential sweeping violations will begin Monday, March 12.

Mr. Howland noted that the sweeping program runs from March 1 through October 31 and some signs have been changed since last year’s sweeping season. “This year, we are revising signs in residential neighborhoods with commercial interests to support their customers’ access to curbside parking spaces during the day. For example, DPW posted new times in the 1400 block of P Street, NW where Whole Foods and several restaurants form a commercial island within a residential neighborhood.”

He cautioned motorists to avoid parking along sweeping routes before that day’s restriction ends. “A supervisor follows behind the sweeper and may require the block to be swept again, so no one should park until the end of the posted sweeping period,” he said.
