The Street Division strives to keep city streets and sidewalks safe and in good repair. This can involve hot mix resurfacing, crack sealing, and concrete replacement. The replacement of curb, gutter, sidewalks, and handicap ramps is dictated by safety concerns and structural deficiency.
The repair of traffic signals on State roads, such as Routes 450, 197, 214 and 3/301, is the responsibility of the Maryland State Highway Administration. Call 410-787-7652 or after hours 410-582-5650 to report problems.
