Right SB lane of Wisconsin Ave. closed at Marriott HQ site (Photos)
The right southbound lane of Wisconsin Avenue (MD 355) has been closed alongside the Marriott headquarters construction site south of Norfolk Avenue in Bethesda. Barriers have been placed at the edge of the lane to allow pedestrians to use the curb lane in lieu of the sidewalk, but only when demolition work is not active. However, pedestrian use will be barred during actual demolition near the street. The closures are scheduled to last more than two months, which will have a severe impact on both pedestrians and commuter auto traffic in the morning.
