Elm St. to close Jan. 23 between Wisconsin and Woodmont Aves. - for 8 months
During the closure, pedestrians will still be able to use the sidewalks along Elm, but there will be no through traffic. The MTA announcement does not indicate if the closure on the Woodmont side will be above the parking lot and businesses like Potbelly and Tropical Smoothie Cafe, or literally at Woodmont Avenue. If it's the latter, those businesses could be hurt during the closure.
Furthermore, there will be daily lane closures on Wisconsin and Bethesda Avenues during the Pepco project, and night work on Wisconsin. Normal daytime work will take place during business hours. Expect traffic delays and confusion around this block for the next several years.
