A road construction project will widen Rayford Road to four lanes between an area 40 feet east of Waterbend Cove to approximately 400 feet east of Birnham Woods Drive through the fall. The project includes creating two new eastbound travel lanes from Waterbend to the intersection with Birnham Woods and using the existing road for the westbound lanes. Construction began in October with D&W Contractors excavating the two eastbound lanes and preparing to pour concrete, according to Montgomery County Precinct 3. The project also includes constructing a traffic signal at the Rayford-Birnham Woods intersection as well as widening Birnhan Woods by 600 feet both north and south of Rayford.
