A permit is required to close a street for any type of event (e.g. race, parade, festival, etc). The first step in this process is for the resident to fill out and submit a permit application form. The form can be found and downloaded from the website referenced below.
The completed form must be submitted 2 months prior to the event to the Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Engineering, 100 Edison Park Drive, 4th Floor, Gaithersburg, MD 20878, or emailed to email@example.com.
If the road is a numbered route such as Rte. 355, 117, please contact the Maryland State Highway Administration at at 301.513.7300.
