The "Wheaton Woods Renewal" project is an ongoing project of a variety of agencies, coordinated by "Renew Montgomery", concentrating on the Wheaton Woods neighborhood.


The "Renew Montgomery" Wheaton Woods Renewal starts in the summer of 2009 and will continue through the construction season of 2010. As other project features are considered timely and are funded, the project may continue into the forseeable future, perhaps until approximately 2014 or 2015.

Curbs, Gutters, Sidewalks

Curbs, gutters, and sidewalks are likely to be at least partially replaced or upgraded by the close of the 2009 construction season. Curbs at corners are to be made wheelchair accessible and compliant with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and comparable State and County laws and codes.

Street Resurfacing

Street repair and resurfacing is likely to start sometime in the construction season of 2010, after the work on curbs, gutters, and sidewalks is completed in the areas to be resurfaced.

Renew Montgomery

"Renew Montgomery" is a program operating under the auspices of the Montgomery County, Maryland, Department of Transportation.

From their website (downloaded 2009 May 29):

Since its inception in 1997, through 2008, a total of 
$48 million has been spent in 71 neighborhoods. 
Renew Montgomery has been successful in addressing the 
backlog of infrastructure repair needs in matured 
neighborhoods; coordinating repair activity with 
other programs within the department; and providing citizens 
with an opportunity to voice their neighborhood 
infrastructure concerns.
Although the majority of the work continues to center 
around the repair of sidewalk, curb, and, gutter, 
other department activities, such as improved bus stop access 
and the upgrading of traffic signs, have also been completed. 
Tree maintenance occurred upon resident request or 
where it was necessary to cut tree roots or remove trees 
in conjunction with sidewalk repair. Trees which were removed 
due to sidewalk construction were replaced with appropriate 
trees after obtaining input from the affected residents.
