Project Scope and Design

The proposed structure is to be constructed of a precast concrete arch and wingwalls. In order to minimize the inconvenience to Locust Hill Estates residents, precast elements are used so as to shorten construction duration as much as possible. The Rock Creek tributary is classified as a Use 1 Stream and no instream work is permitted from March 1 through June 15. Stained formliners will be utilized on exposed concrete surfaces in order to maintain the existing aesthetic as nearly as possible. Existing electric power will be de-energized and the telephone lines adjacent to the bridge will be relocated prior to construction.

Project Management Team

A staff of dedicated professionals will oversee the construction and insure that the project is completed safely, timely, on-budget and in compliance with the specifications. In addition, the team members are available to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to contact any of member of the Project Management team.

Traffic Control, Work Hours, and Construction Phasing

Construction will take place Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. with temporary lane closures between 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Occasional Saturday work may be necessary to make up for weather delays. The County will work to minimize any disruption.

Impacts to County Services

Montgomery County strives to minimize the impact construction projects have on residents, businesses and motorists. No “curb side” government services (such as recycling, mail delivery, etc.) will be impacted by this project. DTE has coordinated the road closure with Public Schools, Police, Fire and Rescue Services, Ride-on, Solid Waste and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Each agency has plans to continue to provide services throughout the duration of the project.

Staging areas will be established to store materials and equipment within the County right-of-way. All vehicles parked in the right-of-way will need to be moved. In order to minimize the inconveniences to the public, businesses, and County services, lane closures will be kept to a minimum duration and allowed only between hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Driveways and entrances will remain accessible at all times during construction. Warning, guidance, and directional signs will be posted throughout the project vicinity to keep motorists informed of conditions. Please use caution when travelling through the work zone, for your sake and the safety of work crews.
