A project will widen Rayford Road to four lanes between an area 40 feet east of Waterbend Cove and approximately 400 feet east of Birnham Woods Drive. It includes creating two new eastbound travel lanes from Waterbend to the Rayford intersection with Birnham Woods and using the existing road for the westbound lanes. The project also includes constructing a traffic signal at the Rayford-Birnham Woods intersection and widening Birnham Woods by 600 feet north and south of Rayford. In early March, officials said most of the excavation for the new eastbound lanes had been completed. Montgomery County Precinct 3 officials said residents should expect detours when concrete pavement work is completed at the other intersections located within the project area.
