The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (DOT) has announced a Public Hearing on the Goshen Road Improvements Project, to be held at Whetstone Elementary School, 19201 Thomas Farm Road, off Centerway Road, on Thursday, Jan. 28 at 7:15 p.m.
The purpose of the hearing is to present a description of the project and collect community input.
This roadway improvement has been in the county's Capital Improvement Budget for many years and is slated to begin construction in 2020 with a completion in 2022. During the recent County Council Planning, Housing and Economic Development (PHED) Committee on the Montgomery Village Master Plan, the right-of-way for the project was increased from 103 feet to 105 feet. However, the PHED Committee is also recommending that the roadway only be widened to 4 lanes.
Residents are encouraged to attend and participate in this community meeting. For more information and to forward written comments, contact Program Manager Michael F. Mitchell at 240-777-7262.
