Construction starting on Old Georgetown Rd
Over the past couple of days they have been preparing to start the road resurfacing project on Old Georgetown Road near the downtown area of Bethesda, MD.
You may recall that last year they resurfaced a stretch of the road but stopped short of the downtown area. Now they are going to resurface it from where they left off through the end of the road. If the last project is any indication, there is a lot to do, replace the storm drains, replace the curbs, put in concrete pads where the bus stops are then, finally, grind down and resurface the road itself.
In the mornings they have been closing one lane southbound (toward Bethesda) starting a bit before 9:00 am. I'd wish they would wait until after 9 because this does cause traffic to back up quickly.
