More Roadway Improvement Projects Underway

MCDOT will resurface roadways in the Inverness North community, located in Potomac . The roads will be resurfaced with hot mix asphalt in July or August. The project should take about four weeks to complete. Work hours are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, although some work on Saturdays may be required.

Highway Services pavement preservation projects planned for July/August will use a micro surfacing material to extend the life of the pavement on Weller Road, from Littleton Street to Georgia Avenue, Silver  Spring; Bauer Drive, from Emory Lane to Norbeck Road, Rockville; and Sugarbush and Snowshoe Lanes in North Bethesda. The projects are expected to take six to eight weeks to complete, weather permitting. Work hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays. 

MCDOT will permanently patch pavement in the Good Hope Estates community in Silver Spring; the  Carole Acres neighborhood in Colesville; and on Brookeville Road, from Georgia Avenue to Olney-Laytonsville Road, Olney, beginning in July or August. Areas of distressed pavement will be excavated and replaced with hot mix asphalt. This treatment cost effectively preserves pavement by preventing water infiltration and restoring the road’s structural integrity. The projects will take about eight weeks to complete, weather permitting, and crews will work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Some work on Saturdays may be required.

In Darnestown, crews will use a chip seal resurfacing treatment on Black Rock Road, from Darnestown Road to Burdette Lane, to preserve the pavement on this rural/rustic road. Chipseal is an overlay of liquid asphalt binder and a layer of small gravel that preserves the pavement structure and the natural, agricultural and historic character of the area. The project will begin in mid-July and will take several weeks to complete. Work hours will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, with some Saturdays if necessary.
