“Residential Street Sweeping Resumes Monday, March 4
The Department of Public Works (DPW) has launched a new “MyDPW” mobile app that allows residents to receive alerts about when to move their vehicles ahead of weekly residential street sweeping. The app is designed for residents who frequently park on residential streets, allowing them to receive alerts about the specific blocks they select.
“With this new app, we hope to lessen the burden on those who park on residential streets and decrease the number of vehicles our street sweepers need to maneuver around,” said Acting DPW Director Chris Geldart. “Looking ahead, we plan to expand MyDPW to include other DPW services as well, using technology to make things as convenient as possible for residents.”
In addition to alerts about street sweeping, the mobile app allows residents to sign-up for DPW’s existing booting/towing and leaf collection alerts. (more…)

In addition to Piney Branch, Reno Road is sprouting a particularly glorious crop this year. Where are your favorite spots besides the
Tidal Basin Avenues to view the hubcaps?
This photo does zero justice to how deep this pothole is – I feel like even the word pothole doesn’t do justice to how deep this trench is:
Looking forward to seeing this year’s potholepalooza numbers.
