A significant shift in traffic patterns has occurred along Montrose Parkway and Montrose Road as the Maryland State Highway Administration (MSHA) continues construction of the new interchange at Rockville Pike and Montrose Road.
Motorists traveling in the area should be aware of the following:
- Those traveling to Randolph Road from points west, such as I-270, will be directed onto Montrose Parkway, which begins near Tilden Lane and angles to the right off of Montrose Road..
- At the same time, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation will open the last segment of Montrose Parkway between East Jefferson and Old Georgetown Road. Eastbound Parkway traffic will have direct access to the new underpass beneath Rockville Pike. Traffic will then merge onto Randolph Road on the other side of the Pike.
- Local traffic driving eastbound on Montrose Road will be able to turn right or left onto East Jefferson Street and Rockville Pike. However, eastbound traffic will not be allowed to cross the Pike to Randolph Road.
- Traffic going north on Rockville Pike must use a new ramp to turn right onto Randolph Road.
