If possible, avoid Powder Mill Road and use Ammendale and Cherry Hill Roads to and from Route 1. Milling and paving began October 3rd. The first phase of paving occured between Pine Street and Garrett Avenue, the second phase will be between Route 1 and Rhode Island Avenue, and the third phase will be between Rhode Island and Garrett Avenue. Paving will take place between 11:00 am and 10:00 pm. In addition to the paving, there are still ongoing drainage improvements and sidewalks are being installed between Garrett and Rhode Island Avenue daily between 8 am and 4 pm.

Our next Virtual meeting will be Wednesday, November 16th at 7:00 pm. Look for details on the Beltsville News Facebook page and
