The Bureau of Highways is responsible for pavement, sidewalks, storm drains, and trees along more than 1,000 miles of County roads for the convenience and safety of the public. This work includes preservation efforts such as road crack-sealing and tree trimming as well as remedial efforts such as snow removal and filling potholes.  


Bureau of Highways Responsibilities 


To report a highway maintenance concern such as road condition, sidewalks, storm drainage or street trees, contact the Highways Operations Division at 410-313-2900 or by email: highways@howardcountymd.gov .

To report a traffic control concern such as intersection safety, traffic calming, street lights and mis-timed traffic signal or school flasher, contact the Traffic Engineering Division at 410-313-2930 or by email: traffic@howardcountymd.gov . 


Outside Agencies' Responsibilities 

Street Lights 

BGE is responsible for all street light outages and maintenance,("knocked down," "bulb out," or "on in daylight").  Contact BGE Customer Service at 410-685-0123, or online at www.BGE.com .  

State Roads

The State Highway Administration (SHA) is responsible for all the work and maintenance that you see on roads that have a route number (such as MD Route 40 or Route 29). For an intersection that includes a state and county road, the state takes precedence. In Howard County, the SHA can be contacted at the Dayton office at 410-531-5533, or 1-800-635-5119, or online at www.marylandroads.com .
