The utility infrastructure relocation and construction which began in August 2018 will finish by the end of winter 2019.

Verizon telecommunications infrastructure construction located in the northbound right lanes of Executive Boulevard prior to Old Georgetown Road has been completed with only punch list items remaining-the contractor will return at a later date.

PEPCO electrical construction related to the MNCPPC Aquatic Center property north of the Marinelli Road entrance should end as scheduled on or about March 15, 2019.

Washington Gas infrastructure upgrades in and along Old Georgetown Road both in the main line and at the intersection with Executive Boulevard being completed by National Pipe Line (NPL) continue and will expand to include operations on Executive Boulevard just north of the intersection with Old Georgetown Road.

Construction continues on Towne Road behind the Pike & Rose complex. Until further notice, no parking is permitted on either side of Towne Road. Violators will be subject to citations and violators impeding the construction will be towed. 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 field operations between Montrose Parkway and the end of the cul-de-sac of Towne Road as well as the southbound right lane of Old Georgetown Road south of the Executive Boulevard intersection.

Construction operations taking place in the right-of-way area at the northwest corner of Executive Boulevard and Old Georgetown Road will expand across Executive Boulevard just north of the intersection with Old Georgetown Road. In addition, nighttime construction operations will begin on or about March 17, 2019 and will include multiple lane closures on Old Georgetown Road and Executive Boulevard. During the next two weeks, construction operations include but are not limited to: continued equipment mobilization and staging, material delivery and staging, roadway saw cutting, trench and other excavation, conduit placement and backfilling, structure placement, and hot mix asphalt pavement placement.

Please note that these will be active work zones so be sure to look for the orange warning signs and flaggers! This initial round of utility relocation and construction has a scheduled duration of three months.
