MCDOT Hosted Seventh Chinese Delegation

The Department of Transportation (MCDOT) recently hosted a delegation from Inner Mongolia, China interested in learning about the County’s overall transportation system, MCDOT’s operations and the Department of General Services’ (DGS) Fleet Maintenance operations and facility.

The visitors received briefings on MCDOT’s road, bridge, sidewalk, bike trail and storm drain construction processes; traffic management; parking construction and operations; and transit system, including employer outreach and paratransit support. A tour featured the David F. Bone Equipment Maintenance & Transit Operations Center in Rockville and its green building features; the Division of Highway Services’ operations and salt dome, which is the largest east of the Mississippi River; and DGS’ state-of-the-art fleet operations and automated parts storage and delivery units.
