Don't Let H Street Festival Related Bus Detours or Parking Restrictions Catch You Off Guard

IMG_2514

The H Street Festival is a lot of fun, but there's a ton of logistical planning that goes into making it happen. Parking restrictions, street closures, and bus detours are a necessary evil that aren't a big deal as long as you remember and plan ahead.

Parking restrictions on H Street NE will go into effect at 4am tomorrow morning and remain in place until about 11pm (this could end earlier). During this time you will not be able to park on H Street NE between Fourth Street NE and Florida Ave NE. Emergency No Parking signs should already be posted to alert you.

During the same period the following streets will be closed to vehicular traffic.

  •  H Street, NE, from 3rd Street, NE to Florida Avenue, NE
  • 4th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 5th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 6th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 7th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 8th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 9th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 10th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 11th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 12th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 13th Street, NE, from G Street, NE to I Street, NE (local traffic only)
  • 14th Street, NE, from Florida Avenue, NE to Maryland Avenue, NE

All street closures and listed times are subject to change based upon prevailing or unexpected conditions.

 Expect parking restrictions along the street and watch out for the posted emergency no parking signage. All vehicles that are parked in violation of the emergency no parking signs will be ticketed and towed.

The streetcar will not run during festival, or earlier that morning. It should start running again once the street reopens to vehicular traffic. The following buses will detour from 4am to 9pm: 90, 92, D8, X2.  Note that the detours should end at 9pm (WMATA apparently thinks that 11pm reopening time is too conservative).
