Have you noticed all the construction work along Reedie Drive between Georgia Avenue and Veirs Mill Road in downtown Wheaton?
Montgomery County's Department of Transportation is trying to improve pedestrian safety with concrete medians and islands and with marked crosswalks, according to a report from the Wheaton Redevelopment Program. Sidewalks on that stretch of road are also getting a new look.
Joe Callaway, chief of operations for the Wheaton Urban District, wrote in an email to Patch that the streetscaping project began the second week of November and the construction phase should be completed by Christmas.
Landscaping will most likely be delayed until the spring, he added.
