New parking restrictions for Ward 1. (Luis Gomez Photos)

The District’s Department of Transportation (DDOT) started a parking sign pilot program in the ANC2F/Logan area that lengthens restricted hours for visitor parking a couple of months ago.

The program will be extended to Ward 1 over the next few weeks. These restrictions will extend to ANCs 1A, 1B and 1C (ANC 1D opted out of the ERPP program). One side of the street will have RPP restrictions, and the other side will have enhanced restrictions. Most of the U Street corridor is in Ward 1.

The program is referred to as the Enhanced Residential Permit Parking (ERPP) program. It protects parking for neighborhood residents by designating one side of the street as resident only parking from 7 am to 8:30 pm, Monday to Friday.

The new signage for the ERPP program will be posted on blocks with traditional Residential Permit Parking (RPP) in the next few weeks. Crews will be working on an accelerated schedule to install about 2,500 new signs on approximately 550 neighborhood blocks included in the program. The installation will begin on or about November 17.

The District’s Department of Transportation (DDOT) is implementing a parking sign pilot program in the ANC2F/Logan area that that lengthens restricted hours for visitor parking. The new signs allow for only residents with Zone 2 permits to park on the designated side of a street block from 7 am until midnight. For example, on the 1400 block of Corcoran Street NW, the restrictions are on the north side of the street.

This pilot program is part of the DC Department of Transportation’s plan to limit visitor parking in certain restricted areas and create more parking for residents.

Tougher parking restrictions for visitors have already gone into effect on the 1400 block of Swann Street NW. (Tom Hay)

The enhanced Residential Parking Program (RPP) pilot program is starting to be implemented. Under this program, one side of a residential block is reserved for certain hours for local residents only (by DC Ward parking permits). (See ANC 2F Votes to Support New Parking Regs Benefiting Residents.)

Last week D.C. Department of Transportation (DDOT) employees were seen installing new signage on the 1400 block of Swann Street NW. Now, parking on the northern side of the block is reserved for residents with either Ward 1 or Ward 2 parking stickers from 7 am to midnight, seven days a week. The other side of the block is still available for parking to both residents and visitors under the current posted rules.
