MCDOT Installs New Sidewalk along Seven Locks Road

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Division of Transportation Engineering recently installed 1.25 miles of new sidewalk along Seven Locks Road. In response to a request from the president of the Montgomery Square Civic Association, MCDOT replaced a series of asphalt and dirt paths between Montrose Road and Tuckerman Lane. This project included installing ADA-compliant ramps at intersections and a new, five-foot-wide concrete sidewalk.

The sidewalk, costing about $270,000, provides a safe and convenient pedestrian connection to synagogues, churches, retail stores and other activity centers. The Division of Highway Services is also resurfacing this segment of Seven Locks Road. They will mill and patch the pavement where needed, apply a layer of hot mix asphalt, then re-stripe the road.

More information on sidewalk or roadway projects is available on the County’s website.
