Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) Residential Road Rehabilitation program continues in the Glen Echo community. In response to County Executive Isiah Leggett’s call for a more systematic approach to maintaining the County’s transportation infrastructure, MCDOT responded by rating the condition of every road. Under this program, Glen Echo had many streets rated very poor.
Due to the size and scope of the project, improvements are being made in two phases, with work in Tulip Hill and Mohican Hills completed last summer, and improvements to Glen Echo Heights starting this spring. A total of 18 lane-miles of road will be reconstructed at a projected cost of almost $4 million dollars.
This summer, 16 lane miles of concrete and asphalt work will begin in Forest Glen to rehabilitate that neighborhood.
DOT does not widen or alter the character of the streets in these communities and takes special care to preserve the trees in the right-of-way during construction.
