Repaving Woodmont Avenue

Today they were milling the pavement on Woodmont Avenue between Bethesda Avenue and Elm Street.  Southbound Woodmont Ave lanes were closed and traffic was redirected down one of the northbound lanes

 They were also milling the intersection onto Bethesda Avenue.  This caused significant traffic pattern changes, closing Bethesda Avenue at times.  This forced people wanting to go down Bethesda Ave to instead turn right on Woodmont and go around the block.

The Georgetown Branch trail closes tomorrow

The Georgetown Branch trail will be closing on Tuesday.  Today is your last day to get a run, walk, or bike ride on the trail.  After that it will be closed for the next four to five years while they construct the purple line and the new (paved) trail.

The trail will be re-routed on surface streets between Silver Spring and Bethesda, but you will be sharing the route with cars.

Between now and then, the Apex building (which the trail runs under) will be torn down and a new building put up.  The trail will still go under the new building
