Developer Work Begins on East West Highway in Silver Spring

The lane closings are in the portion of East West Highway between Colesville Road and Blair Mill Road.
Clark Construction has begun lane closures on MD 410 (East West Highway) between Blair Mill Road and US 29 (Colesville Road) in downtown Silver Spring for utility-related construction activity that should be completed by Memorial Day, weather permitting. The closures will take place Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

The lane closures are required so Clark Construction can install a water main for a new complex of four apartment buildings located at 180 High Park Lane, adjacent to Blair Mill Road between MD 410 and Eastern Avenue.  The company is permitted to close one lane on eastbound or westbound MD 410; all traffic lanes will reopen by 3 p.m. each day.

Area residents are advised that equipment noise may be loud and disruptive. Drivers are advised that they may need to add extra commuting time. Signs will alert drivers to lane closures and traffic shifts on MD 410 and a flagging operation will also direct motorists through the work zone.

No sidewalk closures are scheduled for this work.  However, pedestrians are urged to use the safest signalized crossings at crosswalks.
