Signage to help Bethesda businesses walled off by Purple Line construction
Construction of the Purple Line light rail system has forced many businesses in downtown Bethesda and Silver Spring to close. Haagen Dazs and the Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema haven't been hurt as badly as those unfortunate enterprises, but their locations at Bethesda Row are greatly obscured by a wall of construction fencing around the Purple Line construction site on Woodmont Avenue. Recently, advertising graphics were added to the wall to let people know that Mon Ami Gabi, Haagen Dazs and the theater are still there and open for business. As you can see in the photo above, all three businesses are hidden from view by the fence.
