Hydraulic hammer arrives at The Rugby construction site in Bethesda (Photos)
A hydraulic hammer has arrived at the construction site of The Rugby residential tower, at the corner of Rugby and Del Ray Avenues in downtown Bethesda. The device is being used to excavate rock, and according to a memo sent to nearby residents, the process will take approximately two months. All of the work is expected to be done between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM on weekdays only.

As part of the project's noise suppression plan, noise-dampening panels have been installed on the hydraulic hammer. The Donohoe Companies-developed 17-story building is expected to deliver in 2018.
