Much more Purple Line work in Bethesda, Chevy Chase this week
According to Purple Line Transit Partners, the entity in charge of the project, the tower crane arrival and assembly will not disrupt traffic patterns on nearby roads (which is pretty unusual, if you're familiar with usually-disruptive tower crane assemblies), and will be completed by March 16 (strange again, as most tower crane assemblies are completed in 1-2 days).
Also starting Monday, "tree-clearing and grubbing" (a.k.a. clearcutting of forest) will begin on the section of the Georgetown Branch/Capital Crescent Trail between the Air Rights Building and Montgomery Avenue (at East-West Highway).
