 Bethesda Avenue-Woodmont Avenue project (parking lot #31) update

 

The work at the site formally housing the Division of Parking Management's parking lot at the corner of Bethesda Avenue-Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda continues. This lot was designated Lot 31 by MCDOT. Here's an update on the project.

* Woodmont Avenue Closure: Automobile traffic is reminded that Woodmont Avenue remains closed from Miller to Bethesda. Only automobiles with business on Miller or who live off Miller Avenue should enter Woodmont Avenue northbound at Wisconsin.  MC DOT traffic and the Lot 31 development team continue to monitor pedestrian and automobile traffic around the Woodmont Avenue closure.

* Capital Crescent Trail restoration: The seeding and mulching along the trail is complete. The overhead protection of the trail has been completed as well as the restoration of the portion of trail immediately adjacent to Lot 31.

* On the construction site: The Lot 31 excavation and sheeting/shoring work continues to be the primary work at the site.  The excavator is beginning to encounter small rock areas, but to date the rock has been “rippable” by the excavation equipment.  Sheeting/shoring and tie back operations continue around the site also.  For reference, at the southwest side of the site the hole is just over 50% excavated (as of November 16)..
