The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT), Division of Transportation Engineering (DTE), has begun construction of the Needwood Road Bike Path, located on the south side of Needwood Road from Redland Road to Deer Lake Road. The off-road, concrete bike path will be eight feet wide and about 1,300 feet long. This portion of the bike trail is part of a larger 1.7 mile bike path that will eventually extend to Muncaster Mill Road. Construction will take about six months.
Crews will work weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Motorists should expect temporary lane closures during construction between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Occasional Saturday work may be required to make up for project delays resulting from inclement weather.
