Portion Of Woodmont Ave. Closed For Construction

The brief reprieve from the closure of a portion of Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda ends Friday at 9 p.m. The section between Bethesda and Miller Avenues will be closed for the next 20 months for construction.

Now while that's only a very short city block, it is a very busy roadway, as it connects the popular Bethesda Row shopping and dining area with Wisconsin Avenue.

But whatever headaches the closure causes for motorists and business owners will be alleviated according to Bethesda and Montgomery County leaders by the completion of the development project that prompted the closure.

It will include a parking garage that will triple the amount of spaces the old surface lot it replaces had. Hikers and bikers need not worry about the adjacent Capital Crescent Trail, as the construction will not affect access to it.
