Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration to Begin Resurfacing Major Roads in Montgomery County

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is preparing to begin three safety and resurfacing projects in Montgomery County. The projects, which total $6.7 million, are expected to be completed in fall 2019. Motorists are urged to plan extra travel time during the construction.

All the resurfacing projects include milling (removal of the top layer of asphalt), paving and restriping. Other work includes repairing damaged concrete sidewalk, curbs and gutters and cleaning of drainage inlets and pipes.

The first project, which is underway, is in Chevy Chase on MD 185 (Connecticut Avenue) between north of MD 410 (East-West Highway) and Manor Road.

Later in August, MDOT SHA will begin two additional resurfacing projects. In Rockville, MDOT SHA will resurface 1.1 miles of MD 355 (Rockville Pike) between MD 28 (Veirs Mill Road) and Mannakee Street and in Gaithersburg on 1.7 miles of MD 124 (Montgomery Village Avenue) between the spur to Christopher Avenue and Mid-County Highway.

More information about the projects is available here.


  1. The distance between Christopher Avenue and Midcounty Highway is only about a tenth of a mile. I am not sure what they are talking about here.

  2. Goshen road(Montgomery village) has never been resurfaced since last thirty (or more)years. every year they patch it at many places. When we call for resurface,county personnel say,it is going to be widen. I am hearing this for twenty five years.Traffic is increasing on this road.If you have really red my comment, please response. We pay taxes to.
