6-24-14 Bethesda Now: Website For Info, Feedback On Cedar Lane Closure, Summer 2014

The State Highway Administration has established a website to provide updates and a feedback form about its project that will have Cedar Lane closed at Rockville Pike until August.

The website includes photos, schedules, a full environmental analysis and an all important page to submit comments and complaints.

SHA says the closure of about 1,000 feet of Cedar Lane is necessary primarily because it must rebuild a culvert that allows a small stream to flow under the road. The project will bring two new lanes — a left-turn only and thru lane — to help ease traffic back-ups heading to Naval Support Activity Bethesda and NIH each morning.

The road was closed at midnight on June 6. SHA hopes to finish before or by Friday, Aug. 22, before the MCPS school year begins on Monday, Aug. 25.

6-3-14 Montgomery County Govt: Ride On Route 34 Detour around part of Cedar Lane -- Friday, June 6 through approx. Aug 22

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is starting construction on improvements to the Cedar Lane and Maryland Route 355 (Rockville Pike) intersection that will require the detour of Ride On Bus Route 34 beginning June 6 through August 22.

To avoid the construction, the bus route will bypass Cedar Lane between Parkhill and Beach drives, skipping six bus stops (three in each direction) in that stretch of the road. These stops will be temporarily discontinued. A map of detour route is available online.

Route 34 between the Wheaton Metro and Medical Center Metro stations will take the following detour route: Cedar Lane, Beach Drive, Connecticut Avenue, and Jones Bridge Road. The bus will only stop at Route 34 bus stops along this detour route.

Passengers boarding the Route 34 bus at the intersection of Parkwood Drive and Cedar Lane and headed in the direction of the Medical Center Metro Station are advised to board at the westbound bus stop #20868 on Parkwood Drive. If heading towards Wheaton, board the eastbound bus on Parkwood Drive at bus stop #20840.

For more information, visit Ride On’s website or call 311 from within Montgomery County or 240-777-0311 from outside the County.
