Several of Montgomery County’s busiest roads will be resurfaced as part of a $6.7 million effort from the Maryland State Highway Administration.

The first paving project will begin as soon as next week on Connecticut Avenue (MD 185) from the area just north of Route 410 up to Manor Avenue. Drivers should expect single lane closures between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. during the week and on Sunday nights from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. the next morning.

This project will also include an upgrade to the intersection at Connecticut Avenue and Dunlap Street. About 66,000 vehicles per day drive through this work zone.

Later this summer, the MDSHA expects to resurface a 1.1-mile stretch from Rockville Pike (MD 355) from Veirs Mill Road and Mannakee Street. Drivers can expect overnight lane closures from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. during the week. This stretch of road typically sees 44,000 vehicles pass through each day.

MDSHA will also repave 1.7 miles of Montgomery Village Avenue (MD 124) between Christopher Avenue and Mid-County Highway. Lane closures will take place from 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings, with some occasional daytime closures. About 25,000 vehicles use this stretch of road on a typical day.
