State Resurfacing Roadways in the County

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) has begun resurfacing several roadways in the County. Weather permitting, the $4.6 million project will be completed by late summer.

SHA will remove the top layer of asphalt, patch, resurface and install new pavement markings on the following roadways: 
  • MD 355 (Rockville Pike) from Southwood Drive to Wilson Drive; 
  • MD 192 (Forest Glen Road) from Plyers Mill Road to MD 97 (Georgia Avenue); 
  • MD 188 (Wilson Lane) from MacArthur Boulevard to MD 190 (River Road); 
  • MD 188 (Wilson Lane) from Moorland Lane to Arlington Road; 
  • MD 115 (Muncaster Mill Road) from MD 124 (Woodfield Road) to Avery Road; 
  • MD 124 (Woodfield Road) from Woodfield School Road to MD 108 (Damascus Road); 
  • MD 191 (Bradley Lane) from West Avenue to MD 185 (Connecticut Avenue) and; 
  • MD 117 (Clopper Road) from the entrance of Seneca State Park to Long Draft Road. 
To complete the work, crews will close a lane of traffic on roadways inside the work zones weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., and up to two lanes, overnight, Sunday through Thursday between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

SHA will use variable message boards, temporary signs, construction cones, barrels and flaggers to guide motorists through the work zones. Residents and travelers are advised that construction equipment can be loud and disruptive.
