The weather may still be wintry, but the DC Circulator is rolling out its summer hours this week.

The District Department of Transportations expanded the hours of operations for the National Mall on Monday and is expected to move to summer hours for two other routes on April 1.

The expanded hours have been put in place to accommodate the National Cherry Blossom Festival events. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected in the city over the next week for the festival and the March for Our Lives gun control rally.
