ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) Crews are scheduled to begin work at a busy intersection in Montgomery County.

The Maryland State Highway Administration plans to start a nearly $1 million project soon at Viers Mill Road and Route 28 in Rockville. The agency said the work will improve traffic flow in the intersection, which carries more than 31,000 cars daily.

The project will extend and add new turn lanes, resurface existing pavement and upgrade sidewalks and traffic signals.

Roads in the area will be affected during construction. Some lanes on Route 28 and Viers Mill Road will be closed at specific hours during the week when the work begins.

Work is slated to be completed by next summer.
