Note: The holiday hour restrictions as described in the above charts are in effect only during hours of high traffic volume associated with these specific holidays. The actual restricted timeframes may or may not be on the observed holiday. The chart below describes when the holiday hours, weekend hours, and hours of darkness restrictions are in effect when the observed holiday falls on different days of the week. Other common state and federal holidays are intentionally not included in this list and therefore holiday hour restrictions do not apply to them, though the normal restrictions for weekend hours and hours of darkness do apply. These restrictions correspond to WASHTO guidelines.
