Old Georgetown Road Pedestrian Bridge Reopens

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation has reopened the Old Georgetown Road pedestrian bridge after completing repairs.  The bridge crosses over Old Georgetown Road between Woodmont Avenue and Edgemoor Lane, connecting Bethesda Place to the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center, the Metropolitan Apartments and a 1,100-space public parking garage.

The truss bridge was built in 1999.  Work included repairs to the fascia girders and replacement of cladding, railings, the drainage system, concrete pavers and the expansion joint.  The bridge was also cleaned and repainted.
