[ARCHIVED] MDOT/SHA to Start MD 355/Cedar Paving in Early October

The final phase of roadwork for the MD 355 (Rockville Pike)/ Cedar Lane/West Cedar Lane intersection widening project in Montgomery County starts early next month. Beginning in early October (weather/schedule permitting), the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will pave all turn lanes and through lanes at the intersection. Weather permitting, the work should be complete by late fall.

The final resurfacing work includes:
• Removing the top layer of asphalt;
• Resurfacing all traffic lanes
• Applying temporary lane markings

Crews are permitted to close lanes on MD 355 Sundays through Thursdays between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. additionally, and weekdays 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Equipment used for construction may be disruptive. More than 55,000 vehicles drive through this intersection daily.

“We ask that all drivers and pedestrians be alert and look for the orange - the color of construction signs, cones, barrels and fencing,” said SHA District 3 Engineer Brian Young. “Sidewalk, bicycle and pedestrian path users will be able to safely pass through the work zone by following signage that directs them around closed paths or sections of sidewalk. SHA appreciates the cooperation of the public as we work to complete this project.”

This improvement is part of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) intersection projects in Bethesda.
