During Monday’s online discussion, a traveler asked about the repaving on heavily traveled Connecticut Avenue near Jones Bridge Road and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
David Buck, a spokesman for the Maryland State Highway Administration, said all work on the project is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.
This past week, overnight crews began the final resurfacing. The paving should be done by mid-month, weather permitting.
After that, the final work will include upgrades to the traffic signal on Connecticut Avenue at Jones Bridge Road/Kensington Parkway. This will include audible signals and countdown signs for pedestrians.
ICC bus changes
The Maryland Transit Administration’s new plan for bus service on the Intercounty Connector has taken effect. While three of the five routes were threatened with cancellation because of low ridership, only one got chopped.
That was Route 205, which operated between Germantown and College Park via the ICC. Two others were modified: Midday service on routes 202 and 203 was canceled, but a later afternoon run was added on Route 203 between Columbia and Bethesda.
