County to Resurface Black Rock Road

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation is in the process of patching and resurfacing to extend the pavement life on the entirety of Black Rock Road running from Darnestown Road, Maryland Route 28 to Burdette in Germantown.

According to Josh Faust of the Division of Highway Services of MCDOT, “The project started on Monday, July 20. We expect it to last until the end of the first week of August, of course, with construction there is always the possibility that a project could take longer or shorter than we expect.”

Work will be scheduled between 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday, however construction will be permitted on Saturdays, if necessary, to expedite the completion of the project, according to MCDOT.

An MCDOT pavement evaluation has determined that, prior to resurfacing, full depth asphalt patching of the pavement or other repairs may be necessary at selected locations. Full depth patching restores the pavement’s structural integrity and capacity to support vehicle loads, according to a MCDOT newsletter. “An additional step may be necessary to seal large cracks that may not require full depth patching.
