The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will hold a virtual public hearing to discuss the proposed replacement of the Dennis Avenue Bridge, bridge number M-0194,  over Sligo Creek Tributary (Wheaton Branch) in Silver Spring on Wednesday, April 3, at 7pm.

Per the news release: The existing Dennis Avenue Bridge is in need of replacement to enhance the safety of the traveling public. Together with the Wheaton Branch Flood Mitigation project, a sister project by the Department of Environmental Protection (MCDEP), the frequent flooding of five residential properties and local streets upstream of the bridge will be mitigated as well as the occasional roadway flooding on Dennis Avenue that causes significant traffic delays.

At the public hearing, MCDOT will present project details, costs, schedules and obtain public testimony and answer questions. Public input is encouraged and may influence the final design of the project.

The public is encouraged to visit the project website and provide feedback via the online comment form or via email to the Project Manager, Greg Hwang at [email protected]. All information provided, including questions and testimony, will become a matter of public record.

Interpreter services will be provided upon request with five business days advance notice by contacting Lori Main by email at [email protected] or calling 240-777-7271.
