Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for your interest in the Leggett Building construction project at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. We will strive to keep our neighbors informed about significant construction events with this weekly email notification.

Upcoming events are listed below:

  • Demolition
    On Wednesday, a portion of the roof of Falcon Hall collapsed on itself. The incident has no impact on health and safety of individuals on site, on campus, or other surrounding areas. Neither existing utility lines nor surrounding structures were damaged. Removal of asbestos and other hazardous materials had been completed in the fall of 2020, so there is no concern related to air quality. The specific cause of the partial roof collapse is being explored. Montgomery College has notified City of Takoma Park and will continue to share more information with those officials as it is obtained. Safety remains the top priority for the project moving forward. The College will continue to share updates as they become available.
  • Utility Work
    This week, layout and on-site excavation for the new incoming water line from Takoma Avenue will begin. This will involve saw cutting of pavement on the site. More information about the progress of this work will be provided in an upcoming update.
  • Earthwork
    Earthwork activities including layout for the de-watering system and for support of excavation will continue to progress. Work will begin to place a new concrete pad for an existing emergency generator moved to a new location near Science North.
  • Site Logistics
    Work on the relocation of the second construction entrance fence along Fenton Street will continue to occur this week. This will facilitate the flow of traffic on site and help to limit the use of back up alarms. The continued use of construction fencing will provide a barrier to ensure the safety of the site.

Please visit the project’s website at for additional information. You may contact us with questions at or call the project hotline at 800-879-9879.

Thank you,

The Montgomery College Team
