Bethesda and Woodmont avenues Project Update

Southwest Corner
Work continues on the public-private partnership project located on the former parking lot (Lot 31) at the corner of Bethesda and Woodmont avenues in Bethesda. 

While excavation continues, concrete operations have begun. Work continues on the northeast portion of the site to remove soils and install the last of the sheeting/shoring system along the east wall. Excavation is expected to be completed in late June.

Exterior waterproofing is being installed in the northwest quadrant and the first tower crane is in full operation.

Drivers are reminded that Woodmont Avenue remains closed from Miller to Bethesda avenues. Only vehicles with business on Miller or those who live off Miller should enter Woodmont Avenue northbound at Wisconsin.

Overhead protection of the Capital Crescent Trail and its restoration immediately adjacent to Lot 31 is complete. 
Northwest Corner

The Department of Transportation continues to monitor pedestrian and vehicle traffic around the Woodmont Avenue closure to ensure their signal timing changes continue to improve traffic flow on Bethesda Avenue. Additional pedestrian crossing signs have also been installed within the Bethesda/Woodmont intersection.
