Colesville Road Transmission Water Main Replacement (TWMR) Project

Project Scope:

  • WSSC will be replacing and relocating approximately 1.88 miles(1.53 miles of 16/20-inch Transmission Mains and 0.25 miles of Distribution Water Mains) of water mains on US 29/Colesville Road and the connections to its intersecting streets. The project will extend from Georgia Avenue to the entrance of the Beltway.
  • The new water mains will be zinc-coated, ductile iron pipe wrapped in a protective coating, giving the pipes a life expectancy of at least 100 years.
  • Construction is expected to begin on or around August 20, 2017 and be completed by Spring 2019, weather permitting.
