With the return of warmer weather, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s Division of Highway Services (DHS) has resumed repairs to sidewalks and curbs. Two projects under the County’s Renew Montgomery Program began in April and include Wheaton Woods, Wheaton and Connecticut Avenue Estates, Rockville. Renew Montgomery is a comprehensive program which coordinates Department Transportation services to improve the infrastructure of older neighborhoods.
The work involves removing and replacing damaged sidewalks and ensuring that curb ramps are accessible to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, removal and replacement of damaged and misaligned curbs and restoration of disturbed areas with soil, grass seed and straw mulch. While DHS is in the neighborhood, residents can take advantage of the competitive price offered by the County to replace driveway aprons (the portion of the driveway that is within the public right-of-way) and lead walks (the sidewalk from the edge of the road to a homeowner’s property line).
