SHA Begins Drainage Project on Connecticut Avenue


On November 30 (weather permitting), the State Highway Administration (SHA) will begin a drainage improvement project to construct new channel gutters along southbound Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase at the intersections of Woodbine Street and Blackthorn Street. The project will address community concerns about standing water after rainstorms.

Work crews have started at the Connecticut Avenue-Blackthorn Street intersection and then will proceed to Woodbine Street. The public should expect temporary lane closures and restricted access to Blackthorn and Woodbine while work is underway. Signs will be posted to alert drivers.

Crews will work on weekdays, except holidays. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
