Baltimore Road Project Status Update

This is  a quick update on the Baltimore Rd. project. Here is the link on the City's website for the Baltimore Road Project:  http://www.rockvillemd.gov/index.aspx?nid=687

Our project team is coordinating with individual property owners to collect the temporary easements and right of way that will be necessary to construct the project.  The design is on hold while we work through the property acquisition phase of the project, and we expect that we will be in a position to resume design before year's end.

East Rockville Sanitary Sewer Improvements – Design Phase

Purpose: The City of Rockville will provide information on the proposed Rock Creek Sanitary
Sewer Improvement project during the East Rockville Civic Association meeting at 7:30
p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 14, in the Pump House, at 401 South Horners Lane.
Project
Description:
The improvements involve replacing the existing sanitary sewer pipes and manholes with
new, larger pipes. The pipes and manholes to be replaced are located in roadways and
within easements that traverse private property. During construction, lane closures will
be necessary and traffic patterns may be altered. Please see the back of this advisory for a
map of the project area. The improvements are needed due to limited capacity in the
existing sewers. This project was adopted in the Fiscal Year 2015 Capital Improvements
Program.
Location: Beginning at the intersection of East Middle Lane and Monroe Street and ending in
Maryvale Park near Taylor Avenue. Additional streets affected are Hungerford Drive,
Park Road, North Stonestreet Avenue, Grandin Avenue, Highland Avenue, South
Horners Lane, Seth Place and Charles Street (see map here).
Timeline: Design will continue through spring 2015 with construction planned to begin in fall
2015.
Cost: Design: $101,310. Construction: $1.9 million (estimated). The City received a developer
contribution to fund a portion of this project.
Contact: Jim Woods, Rockville Project Manager, at 240-314-8521 or jwoods@rockvillemd.gov

First Street Bridge Replacement - Design Phase

Purpose: The City of Rockville will provide information on the proposed First Street Bridge
Replacement project during the East Rockville Civic Association meeting on at 7:30 p.m.
on Tuesday, Oct. 14, in the Pump House, at 401 South Horners Lane.
Project
Description:
In 2012, the bridge was recommended for replacement after it was inspected by the
City’s consultant as part of Rockville’s ongoing bridge inspection program. The
replacement will ensure that the bridge continues to provide adequate structural stability
for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. In addition, a sidewalk will be constructed on the
east side of First Street from Lynn Court to the First Street spur road. The design of the
replacement is funded by the Bridge Rehabilitation Project in the City’s adopted Fiscal
Year 2015 Capital Improvements Program. During construction, First Street will be
closed to through traffic.
Location: First Street between Lynn Court and the First Street spur road. Please see map here.
Timeline: Design of the bridge rehabilitation will continue into 2015. Construction is anticipated to
begin in fall 2015.
Cost: Design: $225,000. Construction: $1.2 million (estimated).

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.
