Description

This project provides for the design, utilities and construction of a new four-lane divided, closed section roadway from its current terminus south of Oxbridge Tract to its intersection with future Dorsey Mill Road, a distance of approximately 2,565 feet. The project has been coordinated to accommodate the Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) within its right-of-way. The new road will be constructed below Father Hurley Boulevard at the existing bridge crossing. This project will also provide construction of a new arch culvert at the existing stream crossing with a five-foot concrete sidewalk along the east side, retaining walls, and an eight-foot bike way along the west side of the road.

Location

Century Boulevard, Germantown MD

Estimated Schedule

Design phase completed in Winter 2011. Land acquisition completed in Summer 2012. Construction started in Summer 2012 and completed in Fall 2013.

Justification 

This project will provide a vital link in the Germantown area. The new roadway segment provides the necessary link to the future Dorsey Mill Road overpass over I-270, thus providing a connection to Clarksburg without using I-270. This link would create a connection between economic centers on the east and west side of I-270. The linkage to Dorsey Mill Road also establishes a roadway alternative to congested north-south roadways such as I-270 and MD 355. In addition, the CCT will operate within the right-of-way of Century Boulevard.
