MCDOT to Begin Project to Replace Elmhirst Parkway Bridge

Starting about May 20, Montgomery County Department of Transportation's Division of Transportation Engineering will begin a project to replace the Elmhirst Parkway Bridge, located on Elmhirst Parkway between West Cedar Lane and Elmhirst Lane, in Bethesda. The bridge was constructed in 1940 and is in poor condition.

The construction is expected to take about nine months during which Elmhirst Parkway will be closed to traffic and detour routes established. The Elmhirst Parkway Hiker/Biker Trail will remain open. “Curbside” government services (such as recycling, mail delivery, etc.) will not be impacted by the road closure. Driveways and entrances will remain accessible at all times.

Construction will take place Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Occasional Saturday work may be necessary to make up for weather delays.
