The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is preparing to start the second phase of its effort to replace about three miles of water mains in Bethesda’s Woodmont Triangle.

The second phase of the project will involve replacing pipes on busy retail and restaurant corridors in the area. It’s scheduled to begin around Monday.

Streets that will be affected include Cordell, Fairmont, Norfolk, St. Elmo, Auburn, Del Ray, Rugby and Woodmont avenues, according to the utility.

Louis Maya, a WSSC spokesman, said crews will be throughout the area surveying and digging trenches with heavy equipment to replace the pipes. Drivers should expect partial street blockages while the work takes place.

The water main replacement project is expected to be completed by the spring of 2018, weather permitting.

Maya said there will be some water disruptions in the area, but they won’t occur until near the end of the project as crews put the new pipes in place.

The utility is nearly complete with the first phase, which involved replacing water mains along Old Georgetown Road and Battery Lane.

WSSC officials are scheduled to provide more information about the work to area business owners on Aug. 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at The Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce, 7910 Woodmont Ave., Suite 1204 in Bethesda.

Editor's Note: The date of the meeting has been updated after the original flyer about it was incorrect. It is on Aug. 17, not Aug. 18.
