i noticed the standard no parking signs were put up on every pole on 1st street nw between seaton place and rhode island avenue today. from the picture to the right, you can see that parking will not be permitted during daylight hours for the next week. the reason? WASA is going to be tearing up first street for pipe replacement. i thought it had been announced that they would be terminating that program before they had finished replacing all the lead pipes in the city. though, this sign does say "sewer lateral replacement", so we could be talking about a different program here.
