Community Entrance
Posted on Jul 2nd, 2023
COMMUNITY ENTRANCE UPDATE
 
In early June the Board was notified by the Maryland Department of Transportation, State Highway Administration, District 3 that they are expected to start working on the repairs to Rt. 725 in late summer/early fall.  We have been told that there are two pipes under the roadway that have deteriorated and will need to be replaced.  This project will be extensive and may require the closure of this entrance while the repairs are being done.  We will continue to keep you informed, as we receive new information.
Medical Center Coming to Upper Marlboro
Posted on May 11th, 2023
Plans have been implemented to develop a 75K square foot medical center on the corner of Brown Station Rd and Old Marlboro Pike.  At this time, the services specialties that have filed letters of intent to practice at this location will be: cardio, spinal/pain management, and family practice/24hr urgent care, with a few more earmarked but not committed (yet).  This project is currently in the initial development phase with plans to start construction near the end of 2023 and opening doors in 2024.

John Rogers Lane Collapse
Posted on Feb 28th, 2023
**Update** during VOM HOA meeting held 6/27, community members were informed that the state engineers heading the road repair project plan to start in August 2023.  This will be a major reconstruction of the underground drainage system beneath John Rogers extending under both incoming and outgoing lanes and will most likely close the entire entrance during repairs; expect to be re-routed to the Brown Station entrance/exit of John Rogers during this time.
 
As most residents of the Villages know, the entrance lane to John Rogers Blvd has been damaged and closed off for some time.  This is a state road and is of low priority because it "exits" from a state road (MD Rt 725) to a county road (John Rogers Blvd).  However, residents of the VOM community are encouraged to call the MD Highway Dept. to highlight this issue: traffic flow (actually congestion) in this intersection is caused from cars  trying to turn at the light rather than use the proper exit lane, and as winter approaches inclimate weather may lead to safety issues with reduced stopping capabilites.  The contact number for the MD Highway Dept. is (301) 952-0555.  **Use MD Rt 725 at John Rogers Blvd as the location.
