The Fourth of July is nearly upon us, and that means a slew of office and road closings are on the way tomorrow (Wednesday).
All county government offices, courts, libraries and other facilities will be closed for Independence Day, and the county won’t enforce parking meter limits.
Arlington Transit will run buses along a few of its routes on Sunday schedules, but otherwise, bus service won’t be available around the county.
County police are also gearing up to close a variety of roads around Arlington to cope with crowds and Fourth of July events, and they also plan to restrict parking at popular fireworks viewing spots including the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, Long Bridge Park and the Air Force Memorial.

Arlington parks will remain open for the holiday, though the county won’t be holding its annual Fourth of July celebration at Long Bridge Park this year due to budget constraints. Pools at Arlington Public Schools will also be open as usual, as will county spraygrounds, for anyone looking to cool off.
Trash and recycling collection will also proceed as normal.
