Western Workaround Construction Latest Update

From MCDOT: Construction activities anticipated for the next two weeks beginning April 21, 2019

The utility infrastructure relocation and construction which began in August 2018 is near completion and will finish mid-Spring, 2019.

PEPCO electrical construction located on the MNCPPC Aquatic Center property north of the Marinelli Road entrance has been completed—the contractor will return once PEPCO has installed a new power pole.

Washington Gas (WGL) infrastructure upgrades continue in and along Old Georgetown Road in the main line south of the intersection with Executive Boulevard. The Contractor’s operations have expanded to include directional drilling and pipe placement operations underneath Executive Boulevard and Old Georgetown Road with equipment set up and staged in the grassy area south of the Towne Road cul-de-sac. Once they have completed the installation of the 12” main gas line, the contractor will work in the northbound and southbound lanes of Old Georgetown Road north of the Executive Blvd. intersection. This work will be completed during the nighttime hours of 8:00 pm to 5:00 am and is scheduled to be completed these by mid-May 2019, weather permitting.

The construction activities continue on Towne Road behind the Pike & Rose complex and along Old Georgetown Road. Over the next two weeks, construction activity related to Towne Road will be focused in the area of the existing storm water management pond between the Towne Road cul-de-sac and Executive Boulevard. Until further notice, no parking is permitted on either side of Towne Road. In addition, please pay attention to any temporary closure(s), look for steel roadway plates, expect probable driving delays, and look for possible pedestrian detours as the contractor conducts these ongoing field operations.

Please note that these will be active work zones so be sure to look for the orange warning signs and flaggers!
