Christmas and the New Year are around the corner. Just like many Arlington residents, County workers are preparing for a few days off in observance of these holidays.
Dec. 24 and 25 Closures
County government offices will be closed this Thursday and Friday for Christmas. That includes the courts, the DMV and public libraries.
While the Parks and Recreation office will also be closed, park grounds will remain open on those days. The Sheriff’s Office will also hold detention center visiting hours from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on both days.
Trash pick up and recycling will run normal operations on Thursday, but there will be no collection on Friday. Regularly-scheduled Friday pick up will occur on Saturday, Dec. 26 instead.
As for getting around, Metrorail and Metrobus will operate on holiday schedules both days. On Thursday, ART will offer regular service, with the 43 and 84 routes starting at 12:30 p.m on Christmas Eve to accommodate the federal government’s early release.
Only ART routes 41, 45, 51, 55 and 87 will operate Christmas day, and those routes will operate on a Sunday schedule. All other routes will be closed.
