Highway Services Begins Three More Road Projects Funded Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has received over $15 million in stimulus funds designed to boost the economy of local governments and improve the transportation infrastructure.  MCDOT’s Division of Highway Services received $6.7 million to improve seven deteriorated roadways.  The first project, Barnesville Road, was completed last fall, and now three additional resurfacing projects are underway.

Begun in the spring and nearly complete, a resurfacing project on Old Columbia Pike from MD 198 to US 29 is replacing defective curbs, gutters, and sidewalks; patching pavement; and resurfacing with hot mix asphalt.  Similar improvements are underway on 10 lane miles of Shady Grove Road, from I-270 to Darnestown Road, four-and-half lane miles of Randolph Road, from east of Nebel Street to the Rock Creek bridge. 

The remaining ARRA projects -- Forest Glen Road, Travilah Road, and Wightman Road -- are expected to be completed this fall.  For information about other stimulus funds, go to the County’s website.
