Mason-Montgomery Road Widening

Construction Timing:

July 2017 through September 2018

Traffic Impacts:

Update — August 3, 2017

Our work on the widening of Mason-Montgomery Road continues with utility work from Old Irwin-Simpson Road to Socialville-Fosters Road. Related lane closures will take place during the hours of 7 am – 3 pm daily, with no work taking place on weekends. We expect this work to continue through September.

In addition, crews will begin curb and gutter work Monday, August 7 and Tuesday , August 8, weather permitting. This work will take place on southbound Mason-Montgomery Road from Escort Drive to Parkway Drive. One southbound lane will be closed from 6:00 am – 4:30 pm. The work will begin at Escort Drive on August 7, and progress northward. The closed southbound lane will be incrementally opened from south to north as construction progresses.

Project Information:

An additional lane on northbound Mason-Montgomery Road from Parkway Drive to Socialville-Fosters Road will be built.

An additional lane on southbound Mason-Montgomery Road from Socialville-Fosters Road to Escort Drive will be built.

Also as part of this work, additional pedestrian walkways and bike paths will be added. A continuation of the shared-use path that begins at Socialville-Fosters Road and Mason-Montgomery Road will continue south from Socialville-Fosters Road to Irwin-Simpson Road, and a sidewalk will be built from Irwin-Simpson Road to Parkway Drive.

In addition, curb and gutter, and storm sewer improvements will be made.

Project Benefits:

With one additional travel lane in each direction through this section of Mason-Montgomery Road, the road will include six travel lanes with a center turning lane median. This will help ease congestion and improve safety throughout this well-traveled corridor that will be home to P&G’s new Global Beauty Innovation Center.
