On January 20 and 21, Montgomery County Will Provide Regular Friday and Saturday Ride On Service; Normal Parking Rates Also Apply
MCDOT plows 5,200 lane miles of County-owned and maintained roads. The Maryland State Highway Administration clears snow from all numbered roads in the County – most of the main routes – such as Georgia Avenue, Connecticut Avenue, Rockville Pike, etc.
The County Council’s new sidewalk bill does not change the requirement that County property owners, by law, must clear sidewalks in front of and alongside their properties within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm. Help schoolkids, older adults, those dependent on transit and you and your family by providing a safe passage. Be sure to shovel a path that is 36-inches wide – “Wide Enough For Wheelchairs.” And, if possible, help by clearing snow from fire hydrants you’re your home to help emergency responders. Learn more.
On January 8, Ride On made changes to 18 bus routes. Most of the changes modify the bus schedule to more accurately reflect the time it takes for a bus to run its route based on traffic and other conditions. Read more.

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) Division of Transportation Engineering should be completing a bikepath along Needwood Road this spring. The path extends from the south side of Needwood Drive, from the ICC Trail terminus, to the west side of Lake Needwood. Read more.
There is a misperception that there is always a predetermined order for clearing neighborhood streets and non-emergency roads that results in the same streets being plowed “first” or “last” in every storm. In fact, there is no street that is always first or always last. Learn more.
Help keep our neighborhoods attractive, clean, safe and litter-free while improving water quality by participating in the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) Adopt A Road (AAR) and Adopt A Spot (AAS) programs. Join volunteers who regularly remove accumulated trash alongside more than 1,100 lane miles of adopted roadways and at locations, such as parks, open spaces and right-of-ways. Learn more.
