1. Grogans Mill Road and Research Forest Drive turn lane construction

Turn lane improvements at Research Forest Drive and Grogans Mill Road will extend the westbound acceleration lane from southbound Grogans Mill to westbound Research Forest as well as the westbound Research Forest to northbound Grogans Mill. As of April 11, the westbound lane was completed, and work on the eastbound lane was delayed pending the relocation of utility lines, according to engineer John Bleyl. The project is being managed by Montgomery County Precinct 2.
