MCDOT Expects to Open Chapman Avenue Extended Next Spring; Road will Connect Old Georgetown Road and Randolph Road in White Flint

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is extending Chapman Avenue in the White Flint area to enhance the road network by connecting Old Georgetown and Randolph roads. Recently, contractors paved the road base and are working on grading and installing storm drain and stormwater management facilities.

Chapman Avenue extended will have a six-to-eight foot buffer of grass and trees between the road and five-foot-wide sidewalks.  The speed limit will be 30 miles per hour.

Final surface paving of the roadway should be completed in spring 2016. When open, traffic on the road is projected to be 10,000 vehicles a day. The construction contract for the project cost $3.2 million.
