Emergency Pipe Replacements Begun on Newbridge Drive in Potomac and Kings Valley Road in Damascus

Two projects to improve drainage and replace failing pipes have begun on Newbridge Drive, at the creek between Mayberry Court and Hunt Valley/Twin Creek Court in Potomac and on Kings Valley Drive at the creek just south of Kingstead Road in Damascus.

Traffic on both roads will be intermittently detoured, so drivers should look for variable message signs that will instruct them about alternate routes.

Work along Newbridge Drive began in mid-June and will take about six weeks to complete. Work on Kings Valley Road will begin the week of July 7 and should take about two weeks to complete. Work will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The County right-of-way in front of some residences may be disturbed during the repair project, but it will be restored following completion of construction.

For more information, call 311 (outside Montgomery County, call 240-777-0311; TTY 301-251-4850), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
