Nighttime utility work ahead on Wisconsin Ave. in Bethesda

Utility work required for the 8300 Wisconsin construction project in downtown Bethesda is tentatively scheduled to take place between 7:00 PM and 5:00 AM beginning July 13.

A request for a temporary noise waiver has been filed with the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection. The utility work will take place in the southbound lanes of Wisconsin Avenue (MD 355), and I assume will likely require temporary lane closures as well. It is being done at night in compliance with Maryland State Highway Administration requirements that such projects not interfere with daytime traffic or pedestrian activity.

This project is expected to take 30 days to complete, and will take place on weeknights only.
