Public Advised Nighttime Work at the Silver Spring Transit Center to Begin in August

Beginning the week of August 23, residents and employees in the vicinity of the Silver Spring Transit Center (SSTC) site – bordered by Colesville Road, the Metro Red Line Station, Wayne Avenue and Ramsey Avenue – are advised that crews will begin nighttime concrete deliveries and work between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. every other week through January. Working at night will keep the public’s exposure to truck traffic at a minimum and increase safety for transit users near the site. 
The concrete work is expected to take place during the following weeks: September 7 and 21; October 5 and 19; November 2, 16 and 30; December 14 and 28; and January 11 and 25.  The concrete work is weather dependent, so dates may vary. 
Each weekly concrete “pour” will deliver about 600 cubic yards of concrete – equivalent to about 65 loads. Twenty trucks will go back and forth between the concrete plant and the SSTC to deliver the concrete.
For more information about the SSTC, check the County’s Department of General Services website.
