Maryland State Highway Administration to Resurface Portions of Rockville Pike in Bethesda

The Maryland State Highway Administration is temporarily closing lanes for nighttime resurfacing along north and southbound Maryland Route 355 (Rockville Pike) between South Drive and Jones Bridge Road in Bethesda. The work is part of a project to relocate utilities for traffic improvements related to the expansion of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The resurfacing project began in early August. One lane of MD 355 is closed in each direction on weeknights at 7 p.m., followed by two lanes at 10 p.m.  All lanes reopen to traffic no later than 5 a.m.  The project should be completed by the end of August, depending on the weather.
