Georgetown Gets Widened Sidewalk, Discounted Parking for Parents Weekend

One of Georgetown’s busiest weekends is coming up. Parents and Family Weekend at Georgetown, American and George Washington universities is happening on the same weekend: Oct. 17 to 19.

So, the Georgetown Business Improvement District is doing several things to provide a more enjoyable experience for the increased number of visitors to town: widening a block of sidewalks by placing a barricade between the street and the curb, free D.C. Circulator rides and discounted parking.

Starting at Friday evening until Sunday evening, the 3200 block of M Street between Wisconsin Avenue and Potomac Street will gain eight extra feet of walk space on both sides. This will be the second location to test out the temporary widening of the sidewalks to make the retail spaces of Georgetown more comfortable.

The weekend will also feature free D.C. Circulator rides will be available on the northbound only Wisconsin Avenue segment of the Union Station to Georgetown route.

For discounted parking, PMI will be offering $5 daily flat rate parking at the 3307 M St. garage — its entrance is on Bank Street. Colonial parking is offering a 25-percent discount on parking rates at the Georgetown Park garage at 3222 M St. Discounted daily rates at Colonial parking are $15 and must be booked in advance.
