Fall Cleaning Begins for Public Parking Garages

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has started its semi-annual interior washdown to degrease and clean 21 County-owned parking garages in BethesdaSilver Spring and Wheaton. The cleanings, which will occur on nights and weekends, began this week with garages in Bethesda and will conclude with Silver Spring garages on Saturday, Nov. 4.

Some garages will experience partial closures during the cleanings, including select entrance/exit areas and ramps. The full schedule of garage cleanings can be viewed here.

MCDOT performs spring and fall washdowns to keep garages clean and help keep grease, oil and debris out of local waterways. Regular cleanings prevent deterioration from prolonged exposure to salt, sand, oils, gas, dirt, pollen and leaves.

MCDOT contractors will do their best to perform work around garage traffic and parked vehicles and to post signs notifying customers of anticipated impacts.

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

Hi Roy,

I have not observed grime or trash issues in parking structures.  Now I know why!

Good community service post Roy Kelley . Minot/Ward County only has two parking garages and most local citizens would say that is two to many.

Public garages do get soiled and sometimes are sued as toilets  Cleaning them out is a necessity.
