Capital Improvement Projects

The City uses both staff and contractors to keep our public infrastructure in good condition. Below is information on current and upcoming projects. 

Please be advised that additional construction regularly takes place in the City limits by County, State, WSSC, Washington Gas, and PEPCO crews and private property owners. The City is not always advised when these projects are taking place. If there are any questions about work in the City please contact (301) 985-5032.

Current Capital Improvement Projects:

The City has purchased ten new "Cool Green Bus Shelters" through the University Park, MD based company Living Canopies! These innovative structures are designed to provide eco-friendly shading and seating using solar panels and a green roof with living plants. The solar panels provide power for phone charging stations and wi-fi access. 

View a map of the proposed locations for the shelters. These locations are suggestions that meet the criteria of a bus stop without an existing shelter and enough space for a concrete pad to locate the new shelter. These locations are not final and subject to change.

In March 2023, Public Works Deputy Director Hal Metzler hosted a community webinar about the shelters. Watch the recording.
