Parking Restrictions during WMATA Safetrack

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation is making temporary changes to assist commuters traveling in Montgomery County during the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's (WMATA) Safetrack program. The WMATA Safetrack safety surge (Surge 6) is expected to cause major delays on the entire Red Line for seven days between August 1 and August 7, 2016. Metrorail riders are being strongly encouraged to use alternate travel options during this time.

In an effort to increase road capacity on main commuter routes for additional transit/bus service and ease the flow of anticipated additional vehicle traffic, on-street, metered, public parking spaces along routes MD 97/Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring and MD 355/Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda and Chevy Chase will be converted to "No Parking Zones." The parking restrictions will be in effect on MD 97/US 29 Georgia Avenue from Glenmont to the District Line (Silver Spring) and on US 29 from I-495 to MD 97; MD 355/Wisconsin Avenue from I-495 to the District Line (Bethesda and Chevy Chase).

Please contact the Montgomery County Division of Parking Management at 240. 777.8740 for further information.
