The work along Montgomery Village Avenue to replace the water main from Midcounty Highway to Centerway Road will resume in the next few weeks. This two-year project began in April 2022 and was anticipated to be finished toward the beginning of 2024. Due to recent material delays, the project is now expected to be completed in November 2024.
As of February 2023, approximately 50% of the pipe installation was complete, before the project was paused for delays.
Any sidewalks, roads and landscaping that are affected by the project will be completely restored to their original state after the construction is complete.
The pipes being replaced span 0.97 miles along Montgomery Village Avenue from Midcounty Highway to Centerway Road, and include entrances to Lake Shore Drive, Stedwick Road, Whetstone Drive and Centerway Road. The current pipes were installed in the 1960s and are nearing their end-of-life cycle. Replacing these pipes will help reduce future disruptions from water main breaks. The new ductile iron pipes have a corrosion protection which provides a life expectancy of 100 years on the new installation.
All work is be performed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. with road lane closures between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. In the event that both lanes on the southbound side of Montgomery Village Avenue are closed, traffic will be routed in both directions on the opposite northbound side.
Within the scope of the project are the installation of new water mains and new service lines up to the property line. Residences may experience water shut offs up to 8 hours; advanced notice (48 to 72 hours) will be given to affected property owners. WSSC Water noted that reliable water and sewer service will be maintained during construction, and property owners will always have access to their properties. Interior home access and access to private property are not required for this work. Parking restrictions may be put in place in a work area during any given day; advance notice will also be provided for these disruptions.
