The upcoming Monday is Labor Day, so those sticking around town for the weekend should be aware of some closures ahead.

Most city services are impacted by the holiday, from the local animal shelter to courts.

On the bright side: parking enforcement is suspended for metered spaces, residential permit parking districts, and other areas with signed parking time limits. Note: this suspension of enforcement does not apply to areas where parking is normally prohibited, like no parking zones, loading zones, or spaces for persons with disabilities.

  • DASH: The DASH bus network will be operating on a Sunday schedule on Monday. The King Street Trolley will be running, but only every 15 minutes, from 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
  • Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA): The AWLA will be closed on Monday. For animal emergencies or wildlife concerns, call 703 746 4444.
  • Libraries: All Alexandria library branches are closed on Monday
  • City Services: All Health Department and most recreation centers will be closed on Monday. The Impound Facility will also be closed.
  • Water Facilities: The Old Town and Warwick pools will be open from 10 a.m.-4:45 p.m. on Monday. The Potomac Yard Park Interactive Fountain will be open from 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
  • Courts: All of the Alexandria courts are closed on Monday.
  • DMV: All DMV locations are closed on Monday.
  • Historic Alexandria: The Gadsby’s Tavern Museum; Freedom House Museum, and the Stabler–Leadbeater Apothecary Museum will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Monday. All other city museums will be closed.
  • Schools: All schools and administrative offices are closed on Monday.
  • Torpedo Factory: The Torpedo Factory Art Center will be open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Also, ALXnow won’t be reporting on Monday, so if you want to do something and not have it be reported on: Monday is the day to do it.
