Upcoming Construction on Fernwood Rd in Bethesda, MD
Montgomery County DOT is going to be putting in a new sidewalk and improving the drainage along Fernwood Rd between Democracy Blvd and Brixton Ln. This construction starts today and should be done by the end of October.
Currently there is an asphalt sidewalk along that stretch of road. They will replace it with a concrete sidewalk that includes ADA compliant curb ramps. Also part of the plan is adding five new drainage structures and replacing 5-6 trees that are in poor condition.
This construction may include temporary lane closures on Fernwood road, construction should be between 8am and 4pm. If you commute in the area you should look into alternate routes (like down Old Georgetown Rd).
The county sent a newsletter about this to nearby neighborhoods. It is great to see them communicating with residents and letting them know what is going on.
