Update on MCDOT Road Maintenance Projects

Several new road maintenance projects by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Division of Highway Services are beginning in local subdivisions.
Crews are conducting permanent patching, a cost-effective, interim solution that maintains roadway structural integrity, for the following:
  • Plyers Mill Road (Wheaton), between Georgia Avenue and the Town of Kensington, is underway.
  • Fallsreach subdivision (Potomac) began in early September.
The following pavement preservation projects, where crews conduct full-depth patching of deteriorated pavement, seal cracks and apply a micro resurfacing material, are underway:
  • Fox Hills West subdivision (Potomac)
  • Laytonsville Knolls subdivision (Laytonsville)
Two concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk repair projects are underway in the Oakview and Devonshire estates communities.  Crews are replacing defective sections of curbs or sidewalks to ensure structural integrity and proper drainage. Residents in the areas may take advantage of discounts for repairs to their driveway aprons and entryway sidewalks. 
Paving projects, in which crews resurface the local streets with hot mix asphalt include:
  • Apple Ridge Road (Gaithersburg/Montgomery Village) began in mid-September.
  • Kemptown Church Road (near Mt. Airy) began in mid-September.
For more information on resurfacing projects throughout the County, visit the Division of Highway Services’ website or call 311 (TTY, call 301-251-4850), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (new extended hours).
