The Cedar Lane Bridge in Bethesda that carries traffic over Rock Creek reopened to traffic on August 5, three weeks ahead of schedule. The bridge was closed to traffic on June 16 to allow MCDOT to refurbish concrete beams and piers that were in poor condition.
The construction is related to transportation improvements in progress to address the increased traffic expected as a result of the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC) changes at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda . For more information on BRAC, visit the County’s BRAC website.
When the bridge reopened, Ride On bus route 34, which was detoured during the bridge’s closure, returned to its normal routing. For Ride On schedule and route information, visit the Ride On’s website.
