Construction of Century Boulevard Extended to Begin in July

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation will begin construction in July to extend Century Boulevard to Father Hurley Boulevard, add a six-to eight-foot wide shared use bike path along the south side of the road and a sidewalk along the north side. Other project elements include installation of retaining walls, street lighting and landscaping; upgrades to the existing storm drain system; installation of stormwater treatment facilities; and construction of about 2,800 feet of water line, fire hydrants and other Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission structures.

Construction will occur Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Occasional Saturday work may be necessary to make up for weather delays. No lane closures are anticipated on the existing portion of Century Boulevard.

The project is expected to take about 15 months to complete.
