State Highway Administration Reopens Eastern Leg of Cedar Lane in Bethesda

The State Highway Administration (SHA) has reopened the eastern leg of Cedar Lane from Elmhirst Parkway to MD 355 (Rockville Pike) in Bethesda. The closure began in early June as part of the $13.8 million Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) intersection improvement project.

Crews constructed culverts, repaved all traffic lanes and applied new pavement markings within the work zone. While the road is now open to traffic, the 1,000-foot section of Cedar Lane near MD 355 is still an active work zone. Continuing construction activity may require sidewalk closures in this section of Cedar Lane through late 2014. Pedestrians may be directed to safe crossings within the work zone via orange construction signs, cones, barrels and fencing.

Drivers are asked to stay alert, slow down and avoid tailgating. Look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers.
