Gravel and Tar & Chip

Frederick County gravel roads are graded on an as-needed basis. Every spring the county will provide dust control around April or late May.

To report potholes, washboard effect (ruts), additional stone, etc., please use the County's reporting tool FCG FixIt or contact us via email or by phone at 301-600-1564.

Tar & Chip Roads



The Office of Highway Operations’ objective is to seal all macadam roads to prevent water from seeping through the surface and causing damage. We try to cover approximately 1/4 of our tar and chip roads per year.
