The Department of Public Works and Transportation provides roadway infrastructure, litter control, mass transportation and stormwater management to all users in the County in order to ensure a safe and aesthetically pleasing transportation system.
The Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) is responsible for nearly 2,000 miles of County-maintained roadways that range from rural to urban classifications. The transportation infrastructure includes 900 bridges, as well as shoulders, sidewalks, curbs/gutters, stormwater management facilities, driveway aprons and nearly 3,000 acres of grassy area, all of which are maintained by staff of the Department.
In addition the department provides several transit programs for the general public, senior citizens, and persons with disabilities. The transportation services include TheBus, Call-A-Bus, Call-A-Cab, and senior transportation services.
DPW&T’s workforce keeps the County’s various services moving by performing a myriad of activities among which include removing snow and ice from County-maintained roadways, upgrading traffic signals, installing street lights, clearing fallen trees, unclogging drainage inlets and maintaining stormwater management facilities, as well as performing roadway repairs ranging from potholes and sidewalk trip hazards to bridge repairs and resurfacing projects.
Prince George’s County is a dynamic, vital and great place in which to live, work, worship and play. DPW&T will continue to provide professional and timely services to ensure a well-maintained and supportive transportation infrastructure system for all users.
