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 as part of its Renew Montgomery program. Renew Montgomery coordinates Department of Transportation services to improve the infrastructure of older neighborhoods.
Repairs are in progress in the Flower Hill neighborhood, Gaithersburg; and Connecticut Avenue Estates and the Wheaton Woods community in Wheaton.
The work involves removing and replacing damaged sidewalks and ensuring that curb ramps are accessible to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, removing and replacing damaged and misaligned curbs and restoring 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).
For more information, call 311 or email DHS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
