New Publication Provides Information on the County’s Department of Transportation

Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has recently updated its online publication of vital statistics about the department and its services, presenting statistical highlights from each of the five divisions and numerous photos. 
 
Some of the interesting facts in the new brochure include: Did you know Traffic Engineering controls 775 traffic signals and maintains 60,000 street lights? Did you know Ride On carries 29 million passengers a year on 86 routes? Or, that Highway Services has to plow snow from over 5,000 lane miles of road each time we have a winter storm? Did you know that Parking Services operates 41 parking lots and garages, and the Transportation Engineering division has built 77 miles of sidewalks in the past five years?
 
The publication is a great item for classrooms or to provide residents a better understanding of where their tax dollars go. It’s available on the County’s website.
