‘Spring’ Forward Increases Car-Free Trail Hours

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is prompting Montgomery County Parks to increase the hours residents can enjoy car-free streets. The change takes place on Sunday.

The new hours for these roads, which include sections of Beach Drive and Sligo Creek Parkway, will be Friday 9 a.m. to Sunday 6 p.m. This is an extension of two hours, as currently the walkways close at 4 p.m.

DST begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 14. Clocks will “spring” forward one hour.
