The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) is resuming work in Rockville on a $ 2.1 million safety and resurfacing project on MD 28 (East Jefferson Street/Veirs Mill Road) between Monroe Street and MD 911 (First Street) and on MD 355 (Rockville Pike) between MD 28 and MD 911. Weather permitting; the project should be completed by the end of the year.
In addition to resurfacing nearly a half mile of roadway, the project will:
- Upgrade the traffic signal at the MD 355/Dodge Street intersection with more energy efficient light emitting diode (LED) signals;
- Replace and repair sidewalks and driveways to comply with the Americans With Disabilies Act (ADA);
- Install new concrete curbs; and
- Clean and repair roadway drainage inlets.
SHA urges motorists to drive carefully through the work zones. In 2014, nine people lost their lives in Maryland work zone crashes, including four highway workers.
