 State opens eastern leg of Cedar Lane in Bethesda

 

On August 4th, the State Highway Administration (SHA) opened the eastern leg of Cedar Lane from Elmhirst Parkway to MD 355 (Rockville Pike) in Bethesda. The closure began in early June as part of the $13.8 million BRAC intersection improvement project.

During the closure, crews performed culvert construction, repaved all traffic lanes and applied new pavement markings within the work zone.

While the road is now open to vehicular traffic, the 1000-foot section of Cedar Lane near MD 355 is still an active work zone. Continuing construction activity may require sidewalk closures on this section of Cedar Lane through late 2014. Sidewalk users may be directed to safe crossings within the work zone via orange construction signs, cones, barrels, and fencing.
