Request for Inspections

The DPW&T could sure use a few more Roadway Advisory TeamS ("RATS"). We view the citizens of St. Mary’s County as a welcome extension of the Department. Your collective vision is often responsible for recognizing many things our crews have yet to discover, have just happened or that may have been inadvertently overlooked. Early recognition of maintenance related issues is extremely important to us--especially when the assessment of priority and timely response involves the safety of citizens. To help us and for your convenience, we have provided on-line Maintenance and Inspection Request Forms. Please also feel free to contact us on other matters as described in the paragraphs below:
