Quick Links, Facts and Phone Numbers

When winter weather strikes, turn to the city’s website at www.rockvillemd.gov.

Closure and snow emergency information will be available on the website, as well as through Facebook (www.facebook.com/cityofrockville) and Twitter (@rockville411), and by signing up for Alert Rockville notifications at www.rockvillemd.gov/alerts.

City crews treat and plow roads in the following priority order:

1) Primary roads that consist of major arterial roads, emergency routes, central business districts and primary residential roads near schools.

2) Secondary roads that consist of the remainder of neighborhood streets, alleyways and cul-de-sacs. To check if an address is within the city limits, find the Address and Residency Check map at www.rockvillemd.gov/maps.

Removing snow from sidewalks, driveways and entrances is the responsibility of the property and/or business owner or occupant unless a community association has assumed the responsibility. Snow and ice must be cleared from all paved sidewalks abutting a property as follows:

  • Up to 3 inches: Clear within 24 hours.
  • 3 to 9 inches: Clear within 48 hours.
  • 10 inches or more: Clear within 72 hours.

If residents can do so, they should clear snow from around fire hydrants. To report a sidewalk that has not been cleared within the required timeframe, call 240-314-8330.

Seniors may request assistance with clearing snow from their property. Assistance is provided by volunteers and coordinated through the Rockville Senior Center. To volunteer or to request snow-shoveling assistance, call 240-314-8819 or the Senior Center Support Services office at 240-314-8810 or visit www.rockvillemd.gov/winterweather.
