MCDOT Installing Parking Meters on Streets Near Shady Grove Hospital

The Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is installing 292 parking meters on three streets around Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and other nearby medical and professional facilities. The Montgomery County Council approved parking charges in the Shady Grove Life Sciences Center area to help control traffic congestion and encourage more on-street parking turnover, which increases the availability of parking spaces. MCDOT mailed notifications to all affected businesses.

The meters are being installed on both sides of:
  • Medical Center Drive between Great Seneca Highway and Key West Avenue; 
  • Broschart Road between Key West Avenue and Medical Center Drive; and 
  • Blackwell Road between Broschart Road and Great Seneca Highway. 
A map of the locations is available on the County’s website (pdf).

The parking rates will be 65-cents an hour, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. No payment will be required on weekends or holidays.
