NEWS RELEASE

DEVELOPER WORK SCHEDULED TO BEGIN ON EAST WEST HIGHWAY IN SILVER SPRING NEXT WEEK

Daytime, Off-Peak Lane Closures Scheduled Through Late May

(April 8, 2016) –Starting Monday morning April 11, Clark Construction will close lanes on MD 410 (East West Highway) between Blair Mill Road and US 29 (Colesville Road) in downtown Silver Spring for utility-related construction activity. The closures will take place Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Weather and progress permitting, the work should be complete before the Memorial Day holiday.

The lane closures are necessary to install a water main for a new complex of four apartment buildings located at 180 High Park Lane, which is located adjacent to Blair Mill Road between MD 410 and Eastern Avenue.  New underground lines will cross all traffic lanes on MD 410 within the project limits, extend down Blair Mill Road and be tied into the new apartment complex on High Park Lane. 

To perform this work, the company is permitted to close one lane on eastbound or westbound MD 410 within the project limits; all traffic lanes will reopen by 3 p.m. each day.

Area residents are advised that equipment noise can be loud and disruptive. Drivers should plan ahead and add extra commute time and will be alerted to lane closures and traffic shifts on MD 410 via roadway signage. A flagging operation will also direct motorists through the work zone.

No sidewalk closures are scheduled for this work, however; pedestrians should use the safest signalized crossings at crosswalks within the work zone on MD 410 throughout all phases of construction.

For more information about this work, please contact Mr. Josh Loccisano, Clark Construction project manager at josh.loccisano@clarkconstruction.com or 703-405-6492.
