Snow and Ice Programs
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) works closely with the Department of Public Works (DPW) to clear snow and ice from District roadways and bridges.
If a vehicle is not moved off a snow emergency route, DPW will tow the vehicle to a pre-determined lot. DPW will no longer relocate the vehicle in the local neighborhood.
Do your part to help the District Snow Team keep DC's sidewalks safe. Clearing sidewalks after snowstorms helps to ensure the safety and mobility of District communities.
DDOT outlines how snow is cleared from the District's network of bike lanes.
The DDOT Compendium lists policies and procedures for managing the District's transportation network and public space.
Additional information may be found on the District's snow website.
