MoCo To Add MacArthur Boulevard Bike Path


Published:

Construction on a new bikeway along MacArthur Boulevard from the Beltway to just past Glen Echo Park will begin this month, according to Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center director Ken Hartman. The 2.61-mile, 8-foot-wide shared use bike path along the south side of MacArthur Boulevard will run from the Beltway to Oberlin Avenue and should take a year to build. Lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. will happen during the duration of the project, which will also include road resurfacing, the installation of retaining walls, driveways, underpass lighting, landscaping and a new storm drain system. The Department of Transportation's March memo on the project has all the details. Construction will happen on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. with occasional Saturday work in case of weather delays. Alternative pedestrian routes will be provided when any existing routes are closed because of construction.
