In mid-March, the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) began preliminary utility and pole relocation work that requires periodic closure of the right lane of southbound Maryland Route 355 (Rockville Pike) between Cedar Lane and North Drive. The closures will occur weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Weather permitting, work is expected to be completed by mid-May.
The preliminary work is in preparation for a $9 million Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) utility improvement project in Bethesda that will be constructed by PEPCO.
