Utility Work To Cause Lane Closures


Utility work around the site of a 360-unit apartment project could cause some traffic disruptions on Battery Lane and Woodmont Avenue, possibly by the end of this week. Developers of the 8300 Wisconsin Ave. project have electrical installation permits to begin work that will periodically close off a lane of Battery Lane near the intersection with Woodmont Avenue, said Bethesda Urban Partnership Deputy Executive Director Jeff Burton at a Woodmont Triangle Action Group meeting on Friday. Developer StonebridgeCarras will also build two underground vaults on Woodmont Avenue, one that must stretch across the Woodmont Avenue and Battery Lane intersection almost to Public Parking Garage 35, Burton said. StonebridgeCarras is hoping to have permits to begin digging for the apartment and retail project in March. Owners of the site recently applied for an environmental cleanup program with oversight from the Maryland Department of the Environment. The project, on the long-vacant site of a former Clarion hotel, would bring the apartments and a rumored Harris Teeter grocery store to the northern edge of downtown Bethesda.
