MCDOT Honors "Stand Up 4 Transportation" National Infrastructure Day

U.S. Representatives John Delaney and John Sarbanes joined MCDOT Acting Director Al Roshdieh, MCDOT Division of Transit
Services Chief Carolyn Biggins attended the “Stand Up 4 Transportation” event.
On April 9, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) celebrated "Stand Up 4 Transportation" National Infrastructure Day by joining hundreds of local transit organizations across the nation to urge congressional leaders to pass a bill for long-term transportation funding to replace the expiring MAP-21 legislation.  Federal transportation monies help fund new Ride On buses, Metrorail, the future Purple Line, bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and other critical projects.

Congressional leaders were invited for a tour of the LEED Gold Certified Equipment Maintenance and Transit Operations Center (EMTOC) in Rockville.
