Rockville Pike Resurfacing Project Starting

The Maryland State Highway Administration is scheduled to begin a resurfacing project along the heavily used half-mile stretch of Rockville Pike (Route 355) between Hubbard Drive and Halpine Road in Montgomery County. The work, scheduled to be done in late summer, involves overnight lane closures and lane shifts.

That section of Rockville Pike, to the north of the Montrose Parkway interchange project, carries about 53,000 vehicles a day, the SHA says. Three of the pike's shopping centers are in that area.

The lane closures and shifts will occur from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays. While traffic is lightest at those hours, there still may be delays. Watch for the orange and while drums and the electronic message boards marking the work zone.

This is a $204,000 project. In addition to paving, it includes cleaning and repair and replacement of pipes, curbs, gutters and the concrete median and upgrades to the sidewalks. The work is being done by R.F. Kline Inc. of Frederick. The project is under the supervision of SHA's District 3 office, at 301-513-7300 or 1-800-749-0737.

Here's a map of the area.
