Bethesda Ave. resurfacing could begin as soon as tonight
Work will include milling, patching, resurfacing, and modifications to curbs, gutters, sidewalks, ADA ramps and storm drain inlets. Residents of the Flats at Bethesda Avenue and Upstairs at Bethesda Row may want to pick up earplugs or fire up the white noise machine.
The County is tremendously late in addressing the poor surface conditions of Bethesda Avenue. Especially as a main route through the high-end shopping area of Bethesda Row, the state of the roadway has been an embarrassment. But it's a predictable embarrassment, when you remember that none of the current County Council members lives in Bethesda.
