Today, my staff and I, starting at 8am, drove through every neighborhood in Ward 4 assessing the snow recovery process and reporting areas of concern back to the Mayor’s Snow Command Center. While a tremendous amount of progress has been made, more work remains, particularly in regards to many of our side-streets. I will continue to monitor city efforts to remove the remaining snow and ensure that our neighbors can return back to work and normalcy as soon as possible.

Thank you again for your continued patience throughout this blizzard. The amount of neighbors I saw today putting in extra time to shovel out a friend in need was nothing short of amazing — this community has pulled together during this storm, and I am so proud to serve as your Councilmember.

Please continue to alert me and my staff about the status of snow in your neighborhood and do not hesitate to reach out to me or my staff with any additional concerns or questions. Volunteers are still needed to help with snow removal – sign up HERE.

Another round of big thanks are due to the men and women at DPW, DDOT, DGS, the D.C. National Guard, and the D.C. Snow Teams for their continued incredible efforts. And thank you, again, to the thousands of volunteers who stepped up to help their city during this time of need.


DCPS: D.C. Schools are closed tomorrow and plan to open on Wednesday.

D.C. GOVERNMENT: D.C. Government will be open on time tomorrow.

WMATA: The Metro will be operating at normal function tomorrow.

FOOD FOR CHILDREN: Locations throughout the District will continue to provide breakfast and lunch between 10am and 2pm for children. Please check snow.dc.gov for more information.

TRASH COLLECTION: At this time, there will be no trash pickup on Tuesday.

ROADS: Main roads are 100% cleared. Resources are being moved to residential areas.

PLOWING + RESOURCES: Please continue to check snow.dc.gov for updates and info on deployments and resources being used. There are extensive resources being deployed – including equipment, additional contractors, PEPCO assistance, and D.C. government staff.

Please be aware that, while crews have been working around the clock to plow the streets as quickly as possible, this unprecedented snowfall will take some time to be completely cleared. Thank you for your continued patience.

We continue to be vigilant and persistent in our efforts to clear this snow. Keep up the great work Ward 4.
