Highway Services Road Improvement Update

The Division of Highway Services (DHS) continues road improvement projects in October. Schedules are dependent on weather conditions. DHS uses several different techniques to enhance the quality of the County’s infrastructure.

Permanent pavement patching preserves the roadway’s surface, restoring structural integrity. In these types of projects, DHS makes full depth patches, seals cracks, applies hot mix asphalt and replaces lane markings. Work hours for the projects listed below are between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with some Saturday work possible.
  •         College View neighborhood, Silver Spring. Work will take about four weeks.
  •          Pocahontas Drive, Laytonsville. Work will take about two weeks.
A five-week paving project has begun on Seven Locks Road from Bradley Boulevard to River Road, Bethesda, to repair and resurface the roadway.
