Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) highway services begins three more road projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). MCDOT has received over $15 million in stimulus funds designed to boost the economy of local governments and improve the transportation infrastructure. MCDOT’s Division of Highway Services received $6.7 million to improve seven deteriorated roadways. The first project, Barnesville Road, was completed last fall, and now three additional resurfacing projects are underway.
Begun in the spring and nearly complete, a resurfacing project on Old Columbia Pike from MD 198 to US 29 is replacing defective curbs, gutters, and sidewalks; patching pavement; and resurfacing with hot mix asphalt. Similar improvements are underway on 10 lane miles of Shady Grove Road, from I-270 to Darnestown Road, four-and-half lane miles of Randolph Road, from east of Nebel Street to the Rock Creek bridge.
The remaining ARRA projects — Forest Glen Road, Travilah Road, and Wightman Road — are expected to be completed this fall. For information about other stimulus funds, go to the County’s website. (source: Go Montgomery! 7/28/11)
