Nighttime Paving Rescheduled


    Project 
    Description:
    The City’s paving contractor, M. Luis Construction Co. Inc., will resurface roads where utility repairs were made last year. The construction will occur along Rockville Pike (MD355) between First Street and Dodge Street, along Veirs Mill Road (MD586) between Dodge Street and Baltimore Road, and in front of 217 West Montgomery Avenue. Construction was originally scheduled to take place from July 13-17 between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. but was postponed due to weather and contractor delays. The work will now take place from July 25-31 between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Crews will remove and replace the base section of the road and will resurface the road. 
    The State of Maryland requires construction to be performed at night to minimize the impact on traffic and adjacent properties. Impacts during nighttime construction include temporary lane closures and construction noise. Access to driveways will be maintained throughout the construction period.
    Purpose:
    Repave streets where the Department of Public Works replaced a water line along Rockville Pike (MD355) and Veirs Mill Road (MD586) and repaired a sewer on West Montgomery Avenue (MD28).
    Location:
    Rockville Pike (MD355) between First Street and Dodge Street; Veirs Mill Road (MD586) between Dodge Street and Baltimore Road; and West Montgomery Avenue (MD28) in front of house number 217.
    Timeline:
    Construction is anticipated to begin July 27 and end by July 31, weather permitting.
    Cost:
    $50,000 (estimated).

                                Construction Advisory: Southlawn Lane Valve and Vaults Installation

                                Project
                                Description:
                                Work on the  Pressure Reducing Valve project will begin the week of Aug. 4,
                                weather permitting. The project is located on Southlawn Lane, between its intersections with
                                Lofstrand Lane and East Gude Drive. The City’s contractor, Mid-Atlantic Utilities, Inc., will
                                construct water pipes and install two concrete vaults, with a valve in one vault and a water meter
                                in the other.
                                The work is expected to be completed within four months. Temporary single-lane closures of
                                Southlawn Lane, between Lofstrand Lane and East Gude Drive, may occur between 9 a.m. and
                                3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Other impacts during construction may include construction
                                noise and temporary water service interruptions.

                                Purpose: To improve fire hydrant flow pressures in the area. In the event of a water emergency, such as a
                                fire or water pipe break, the valve that will be installed will automatically open to allow water
                                from the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission to be provided for City use.

                                Location: Southlawn Lane between Lofstrand Lane and East Gude Drive (See the reverse side of this
                                advisory for a map of the affected area).

                                Timeline: Work is expected to be completed within four months of the start of construction on Aug. 4.

                                Cost: $245,000

                                New Facebook Page for East Rockville Parents

                                Attention all East Rockville parents: A new Facebook group has been created for parents of young children in the East Rockville neighborhood. The page will serve as a place to share news, ask questions, and coordinate occasional gatherings (we're also open to other suggestions for this group). A few parents from the area have noted a lack of interactive online places where families with young kids could interact - so here it is. If you're interested in joining the group, please search Maryvale Park Area Families on Facebook. Please feel free to invite others you know.
