For the next month, WSSC will continue to replace water pipes, using heavy road equipment in Kemp Mill south of Lamberton, i.e., Kenbrook Dr. and Ct., Bybee St. and Ct., Northwood Terr., Conti Pl. and Ct., and Monticello Ave. This work should not block anyone from pulling their car out of or into their driveway. Please ask the crew, if there seems to be a problem, and they can immediately cover the work with a steel plate, allowing your car to drive over the work.

Road Repaving in Kemp Mill

Many roads are currently being repaved by WSSC and Montgomery County’s Dept. of Transportation throughout Kemp Mill.

WSSC: All the repaving that WSSC is doing should be from curb to curb, after initially patching up holes in the street made during the replacement of pipes. Most, if not all, of the work now seems to be south of Lamberton. Contact Mike Ballantyne, WSSC’s on-site Construction Inspector with any questions or problems: cell: 240-508-3253, office: 301-206-7363, fax: 301-206-7963, Michael.Ballantyne@wsscwater.com.

Dept. of Transportation (MCDOT) Repaving: All roads in Kemp Mill between Lamberton and Hermleigh, east of Arcola and Kemp Mill Road are being repaved this year (see blue roads on attached map). Although the County began by trying to patch up certain sections of road, and completely redo others, MCDOT made the redetermination that it was more suitable for all of the existing roads to be completely milled and resurfaced as opposed to patched, with full width/depth Hot Mix Asphalt.

The Department has been informed of Jewish holidays, and the impossibility
of posting new parking restrictions during those periods when many
residents will be unable to move their cars. I have asked MCDOT to post
signs at the *beginning* of streets warning drivers away
from entering streets where equipment will block cars from driving all the
way through. I have also asked them to give the community a schedule of
the work, and when it will be completed.

For problems and questions, please contact Nick Boone, the Dept.’s on-site
Inspector, cell: 240-821-7133, office: 240-777-7648, nicholas.boone@montgomerycountymd.gov. DOT’s Pavement Management Section Chief is Randy Paugh, 240-777-7608, Cell: 240-821-7242, Randy.Paugh@montgomerycountymd.gov.

Feedback for Kemp Mill Urban Park

Dear Kemp Millers,

We have now had the renovated Kemp Mill Urban Park open for about a week and a half, and many people have had a chance to experience it. The Kemp Mill Civic Association would like to get feedback from the broadest spectrum possible of the community, before speaking with Parks Dept. officials. Please send whatever feedback you’d like to urba…@kempmillcivic.org. Even if you’ve given comments orally to members of the Urban Park Committee, its chair, Seth Jacobson, or me, please email them to us (urba…@kempmillcivic.org), so that we have documentation, and please let us know if you would NOT like to share them with Park Dept. officials.

Best,
Ira
