This work includes preservation efforts such as road crack-sealing and tree trimming as well as remedial efforts such as snow removal and filling potholes.
To report a highway maintenance concern such as road condition, sidewalks, storm drainage or street trees, contact the Highways Operations Division at 410-313-7450 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
To report a traffic control concern such as intersection safety, traffic calming, street lights and mis-timed traffic signal or school flasher, contact the Traffic Engineering Division at 410-313-2430 or by email: email@example.com .
Outside Agencies' Responsibilities
BGE is responsible for all street light outages and maintenance,("knocked down," "bulb out," or "on in daylight"). Contact BGE Customer Service at 410-685-0123, or online at www.BGE.com .
The State Highway Administration (SHA) is responsible for all the work and maintenance that you see on roads that have a route number (such as MD Route 40 or Route 29).
