Highway Services Maintenance Crews Give County a Spring Cleaning

In addition to road paving and sidewalk repairs, the Department of Transportation’s Division of Highway Services (DHS) is intensifying its maintenance efforts to complete work that can only be accomplished during the warmer weather months. Staff is flushing bridge decks and drainage systems of winter debris; repairing road shoulders; and patching potholes. 
 
DHS continues its street sweeping on arterial roads and residential streets that began in mid-March. This joint effort with the Department of Environmental Protection removes abrasives and other debris after the winter snow season. Sweeping typically removes more than 3,000 tons of road debris each year that would otherwise be washed into streams. 
 
“Refresh Montgomery” has also begun. For almost two months, three road crews will work full-time picking up litter. Each year this effort collects about 20 tons of trash. Crews coordinate their work with the volunteer-based Adopt A Road program, which sponsors 260 volunteer groups who conduct roadside cleanups.
