Delegation from China Visits County
The Department of Transportation (MCDOT) hosted a delegation from Inner Mongolia, China. The purpose of the group’s visit was to learn more about the County’s overall transportation system, MCDOT’s operations and the Department of General Services’ (DGS) Fleet Maintenance operations and facility. This is the seventh Chinese delegation recently hosted by MCDOT.
The visitors received briefings on MCDOT’s road, bridge, sidewalk, bike trail and storm drain construction processes; traffic management; parking construction and operations; and transit system, including employer outreach and paratransit support. A tour featured the new David F Bone Equipment Maintenance & Transit Operations Center in Rockville and its green building features; the Division of Highway Services’ operations and salt dome, which is the largest east of the Mississippi River; and DGS’ state-of-the-art operations and automated parts storage and delivery units.
