Bethesda Avenue-Woodmont Avenue Project Update

Work continues at the former site of the County’s parking lot at the corner of Bethesda and Woodmont avenues in Bethesda. The project is in its final weeks of excavation work. Concrete operations are in full swing, including rebar placement and concrete pours and finishing. Footings are completed on the west side of the site. Under construction are elevated decks in the northwest corner and pouring of final footings and slabs on the east side.

Restoration of the Capital Crescent Trail immediately adjacent to Lot 31, including a protective cover, has been completed.

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

When completed, the public-private partnership project will feature 940 underground public parking spaces.

More information on parking options in Bethesda is available on the Division of Parking Management’s website.
