Maureen Cissel and Dwight Joseph of the Prince George’s county’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT) was present at the last NCPCA meeting to update the traffic signal project at the Rhode Island / Edgewood road intersection.

Ms. Cissel said managing utility lines around the project area has been a challenge.

Project manager Mr. Joseph said the project started in late July this year and is anticipated to be finished by next spring with the street pavement completed in late April. He said in order to prepare for the construction work, traffic barriers have been put up and lanes have been shifted.

The pathway to Hollywood school has also been relocated in conjunction with extreme coordination with the school Principal. There will be some green spaces built surrounding sidewalks.

I’ll keep you posted as development progresses in the coming weeks at the intersection.
