Blasting at the Lot 31 construction site at Bethesda Row is scheduled to conclude tomorrow, says Tom Pogue of the Montgomery County Department of Transportation. However, given that that assumes good weather - and rain is forecast all day today - there's a chance it could end Thursday instead.
Three construction cranes will be erected in the pit next week, and then concrete-pouring work will begin. Throughout next month, crews will construct foundations, footings and a drainage system.
During this, a new Bethesda Avenue entrance to the site will be utilized. Cement mixers and other trucks will enter and exit there, so be alert for flagmen while driving on Bethesda Avenue or Woodmont Avenue.
All of this work is to build The Darcy, The Flats, and a 900-space public parking garage at Bethesda Row.
