Lot 31 Construction Update


Published:

County officials are attempting to keep residents up-to-date on the underground garage construction at the old Lot 31, which has caused a small stir in one of Bethesda's busiest areas. The project, which will keep Woodmont Avenue closed south of the intersection with Bethesda Avenue at Bethesda Row for about two years, is progressing, according to an update today from the Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center: 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. The update also says there have been no major changes to traffic operations in the area in the last two weeks. In the days after the closure, County Department of Transportation officials moved to increase signage near the residential Leland Street area after finding motorists trying to cut through.   The update also included photos of excavation progress. Construction crews must dig on the site of the lot and Woodmont Avenue to build a parking garage underneath. They will then repave Woodmont Avenue on top of the garage, which will serve two new apartment complexes. Photos via Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center
