Update on Bethesda and Woodmont avenues Parking Project

A public-private partnership project located at the intersection of Woodmont and Bethesda avenues in downtown Bethesda will more than triple the number of public parking spaces that were available on the former surface parking lot.

The primary focus of the construction team has been completion of utility work. Pile driving is occurring on the west side of the site, and drilling began this month on the east and north sides of the intersection.

Here’s an update on the progress of on-site work:

  • Capital Crescent Trail Restoration. The seeding and mulching work along the trail south of the site is about 90 percent complete.
  • Traffic Signal Modifications. A new Woodmont Avenue traffic signal pole and wiring is complete. The Pepco service connection to the new traffic signal is expected to be completed in early September.
  • Bethesda Avenue Crosswalk. Work began in early August to restore the crosswalk at Bethesda Avenue and make improvements on the north side of the crosswalk.
