The intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Executive Blvd. will be closing in March

MCDOT has announced they will be closing the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Executive Blvd. in early March to speed up completion of the Western Workaround project and ensure the safety of construction workers.

The detour plan can be found on the map below (which I know is a bit fuzzy) and also here. MCDOT plans to have signage directing people along the detour routes. MCDOT will soon share their plans for pedestrian and bicycle access as well as a better detour map.

Prior to the intersection closure, MCDOT and its prime contractor will ensure that the new section of Grand Park Avenue between Old Georgetown Road and Banneker Avenue is open to traffic. In addition, the scheduled improvements along Executive Blvd. between Nicholson Lane and Banneker Avenue will be completed before the intersection closure. 

Work hours will be from 6:00 am until 10:00 pm Monday through Friday. N0 overnight shift is planned at this time. The intersection will be closed for about five months.

MCDOT is planning outreach to the businesses and residents who live and work near this intersection. If you have questions or concerns about this closure, you can ask Marcelo Cortez, Chief, Transportation Construction Section, MCDOT, Division of Transportation Engineering at R.Marcelo.Cortez@montgomerycountymd.gov .

Amy, I would love it if a detour map, a clear graphic that could be read by novices, could be created. I’d like to send this out to my community off Nicholson Lane, Old Georgetown Village Townhomes, asap. I’m president of the HOA.
Any thoughts?

    We would love that, too. MCDOT promised an updated map that’s more easily read and a map that includes pedestrian and bike options. As soon as we get it, we’ll send it out.

Also, Amy, will the new road going directly into Pike and Rose, Grand Park Avenue, be open before this intersection closes for 5 months?
