Paving project on University Blvd.

By Washington Post Editors

A $2.4 million paving and safety project is underway on University Boulevard between Arcola Avenue and Colesville Road in Montgomery County.

The project, scheduled to be completed this fall, includes patching and resurfacing all lanes of the segment, according to the Maryland State Highway Administration. Crews are also reconstructing sidewalks and ramps in accordance with the American With Disabilities Act; repairing and replacing curbs, gutters and guardrails; upgrading pedestrian signals; and installing new pavement markings.

The SHA said there will be single lane closures on University Boulevard (MD 193) between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Double lane closures are possible Sunday through Thursday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

For questions about the work, call the SHA District 3 office at 301-513-7300. Have you been through the work zone? Describe your experience in the comments below.
