The District's Department of Motor Vehicles (DC DMV) new Rhode Island Service Center will open on March 19.

Located in Rhode Island Row at 2350 Washington Place, in Northeast, the service center will operate from 8:15 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday - Saturday.

"We are excited to open this new, state-of-the-art service center," said DMV Director Lucinda Babers. "This is a full service facility and customers will be provided with the same services that they currently receive at our Penn Branch and Southwest Service Centers."

The new center, which is accessible to both cyclists and pedestrians, is nearby for metro riders from the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station. There is also metro, garage and street parking in the surrounding area.

Mayor Vincent C. Gray and Babers will cut the ribbon for the center at a later date.

Meanwhile, with the opening of the Rhode Island center, the temporary C Street Service Center, located at 301 C St. in Northwest, will close on Friday, March 8. Adjudication Services, which is in the same building as the Temporary C Street Service Center, will remain open.
