GAITHERSBURG, Md. - Gov. Larry Hogan announced major upgrades coming to the Interstate 270 corridor during a press conference in Gaithersburg on Tuesday.
The $97.71-million project at Watkins Mill Road looks to provide congestion relief on one of Montgomery County's most heavily traveled roadways.
The 1.25-mile project, which extends between Montgomery Village Avenue and the Great Seneca Creek in Gaithersburg, includes a new four-lane bridge over I-270.
Part of the project will also include resurfacing the I-270 collector/distributor lanes and a section of Watkins Mill Road, constructing retaining walls, and several other structural improvements.
The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration is aiming to have the project completed by the summer of 2020.
