The Division of Highway Services (DHS) will begin a repaving project on Seven Locks Road in early May that will take about four weeks to complete. DHS will patch areas of distressed pavement; mill the roadway surface, removing one to two inches to improve drainage; make utility adjustments; seal cracks; repave the road using hot mix asphalt; and restore the lane markings.
DHS will also begin concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk repairs in the Longmead Crossing Community in Silver Spring in early May. While DHS is in the neighborhood, residents can take advantage of discounts for concrete work repairs to 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).
