Eastham's Exxon closed as a gas station in the fall of 2012 at 7100 Wisconsin Avenue, to make way for a luxury residential building developed by Washington Property Company. However, although the gas pumps and underground tanks were removed, Eastham's has maintained an auto repair facility on its old Exxon site.
Now that the construction is getting ready to proceed, Eastham's is moving across town to the old BP site. It, too, has had its fuel facilities removed. Eastham's will use the garage facilities to continue providing its popular auto repair services to the Bethesda community.
Alas, this arrangement will come to an end, as well. The BP site will eventually be home to a 17-story apartment tower, at which time Eastham's will have to move yet again.
That out of control light on the Crown Castle TV tower on River Road appeared to be behaving itself again last night. The bulb had returned to the dull, soft flash it is supposed to be set at. I'll continue to monitor the situation. Hopefully resident complaints were heard by Crown Castle.
The Bethesda tower no longer broadcasts analog television, but continues to emit radio and cellphone signals, among other transmissions.
