Snowstorm Information

Let’s hope we’ve seen the last of the snow for this season!! However, if we DO get more snow, here are a few things the Prince George’s County Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) would like you to know and do.

To assist snow removal crews, citizens and residents are requested to:

  • Move and keep vehicles off snow emergency routes
  • Park in driveways or other off-road locations wherever possible
  • Park only on the EVEN NUMBERED sides of roads and streets

Single-family homeowners, renters and business owners are responsible for removing snow and ice from sidewalks abutting their homes or businesses.

During a snow and ice event, residents and citizens are encouraged to wait 12 hours after the precipitation has stopped to call the Snow Information Center at 301.350.0500 or CountyClick 3-1-1 to report emergencies or concerns about roadway conditions.

To learn more, visit DPW&T’s Snow and Ice Control page.
