Virtual Public Meeting on the Schaeffer Road Bridge Over Little Seneca Creek Replacement Project in Poolesville to be Held on Wednesday, Sept. 6

Per MCDOT: On Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m., the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will hold a virtual public meeting to discuss the replacement of the Schaeffer Road Bridge (No. M-0137) over Little Seneca Creek in Poolesville. At the virtual public information meeting MCDOT will present the project details, costs, schedules and obtain public comments and answer questions. The bridge inspection revealed that the structure is in poor condition, considered structurally deficient and needs replacement. The completed project will enhance safety for motorists and bicyclists as they travel to nearby schools and facilities.

Online registration is required to attend. On the morning of the meeting, an email with a Zoom link will be sent to registrants.  Prior to the virtual meeting, the public is encouraged to review the project files on the project website.

Comments or questions must be submitted by Friday, Oct. 6 to Project Manager, Greg Hwang via this online comment form or by email to [email protected]. All information provided, including questions, will become a matter of public record.
