The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is resurfacing a section of MD 119 (Great Seneca Highway) in Gaithersburg as part of a $765,000 project at the Kentlands Boulevard/Orchard Ridge Drive intersection.
SHA designed the project to increase the left turn lane vehicle capacity to address current and future traffic demands along westbound Orchard Ridge Dr., improve left turn movements from MD 119 onto Orchard Ridge Dr. and enhance pedestrian safety across MD 119.
Pedestrian traffic will be maintained at all times during construction. Signs will direct pedestrians to safe crossings within the project limits. SHA may use electronic message boards, construction cones, barrels, arrow boards and a flagging operation to direct motorists through the work zone.
Weather permitting, improvements should be complete by late fall 2015.
