Snow Removal

When a snow emergency is declared, the Prince George’s County Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) is responsible for providing “passable” conditions on a network of more than 1,900 miles of county-maintained roadways to ensure the safety of residents, citizens, and travelers.

To assist crews, citizens and residents are requested to:

  • Move and keep vehicles off snow emergency routes

  • Park in driveways or other off-road locations

  • Park only on the even-numbered sides of roads/streets

During a snow and ice event, residents and citizens are asked to wait 24 hours, after the precipitation has stopped, to call 311 or 301-883-4748 to report emergencies or concerns about roadway conditions/snow removal.
