Highway Services Road Improvement Update

The Division of Highway Services (DHS) continues road improvement projects in November.  Schedules are dependent on weather conditions.

Permanent pavement patching projects are planned for two roads in Olney: Hines Road and Cashell Road. Permanent pavement patching preserves pavement, restoring the roadway’s structural capacity and integrity. In these types of projects, DHS makes full depth patches, seals cracks, applies hot mix asphalt and replaces lane markings. Upcoming projects will take about three weeks to complete and will require daily, short-term parking restrictions. Work will occur Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., but some Saturday work may be required.

A three-week pavement preservation project is also planned for Shakespeare Boulevard, from Frederick Road to Germantown Road, in Germantown to repair and resurface the roadway. The project includes full depth patching, crack sealing, application of a liquid surfacing material and replacement of lane markings. Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Temporary lane closures and detours may be necessary.
