Forest Glen Road/Linden Lane at the CSX railroad crossing in Silver Spring will close temporarily in about two weeks while the roadway is reconstructed by CSX. In the next few days, signs will advise drivers of the closing and detours. The road will be closed for 30 to 45 days, depending on the weather.
Montgomery County requested the repairs because of the very poor condition of the roadway, and the reconstruction is too extensive to be completed without closing the road. Funding for the project comes from State and Federal monies designated for railroad grade crossing safety.
During the reconstruction, Montgomery County will complete the sidewalk on the south side of the road to provide a separate path for pedestrians and cyclists so they no longer need to walk or ride in travel lanes.
