Highway to Begin More Pavement Preservation Projects

Projects that will begin in July include roadway repairs to Drumm Avenue, from University Boulevard (MD 193) to Blueford Road, in Kensington, and Tucker Lane in Ashton. Both projects will take about six to eight weeks to complete, weather permitting. Montgomery County Department of Transportation Highway Services will apply a micro surfacing material to extend pavement life. Work hours will be between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Crews will also resurface roads with hot mix asphalt in the Sandy Spring Meadows neighborhood in Olney. The project is expected to take eight to 10 weeks to complete, weather permitting. Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with some Saturdays if necessary.

More information about the projects is available from MC311 by calling 311 from within the County or 240-777-0311.
