Barnesville Road Reopens after Major Repairs
| ||For Immediate Release|
April 19, 2012
Barnesville Road at Bucklodge Creek has reopened after being closed since early March for repairs following the failure of a five-foot diameter pipe that ran under the bridge. The work was conducted by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Division of Highway Services and involved excavating the road, removing the old pipe, installing a new 60-inch diameter pipe, backfilling material around the pipe and reconstructing the road segment. The repair project also required diversion of Bucklodge Creek and construction of new end walls on each side of Barnesville Road.
MCDOT appreciates the public’s cooperation and patience during the repairs. For up-to-date reports of other traffic disruptions due to construction, incidents, or special events, visit the Division of Traffic Engineering and Operation's website at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/mcdot
