Work to Temporarily Close Pedestrian Tunnel Under Shady Grove Road

In early May, Montgomery County Department of Transportation contractors will close the Mill Run Drive Pedestrian Tunnel under Shady Grove Road for approximately two weeks.

During this closure, contractors will repair and repaint the ceiling, walls, and railings in the tunnel. Crews will also complete lighting repairs. The contractor for this project is Burtonsville-based Colossal Contractors Inc.

A temporary path will link the west side of Mill Run Drive with the pedestrian crosswalk across Shady Grove Road. Crews have recently installed pedestrian signals at that crosswalk.

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation aims to reopen the tunnel before swim season at the nearby Mill Creek Towne Swim Association. The area surrounding the tunnel will be backfilled and reseeded after the tunnel work is complete.
