Portions of Birnham Woods Drive between Waterbend Cove and Rayford Road will reopen this week, according to Montgomery County Precinct 3.

A project to widen Birnham Woods from two to four lanes from Waterbend to Rayford began work in March, officials said. The completed project will result in two lanes in each direction, in addition to a left-turn lane at Birnham Woods and Waterbend and at Birnham Woods and Lexington Boulevard. Pavement and widening work was underway at Birnham Woods and Waterbend this summer. The contractor will continue working on drainage ditches with grading and seeding, according to Precinct 3.

Although the project was contracted for 420 calendar, days, it is expected to be substantially complete with all lanes open by Aug. 10, officials said.
