Update on Washington Gas project in Edgemoor neighborhood of Bethesda

Washington Gas, as of yesterday, has completed replacing its main lines under streets of the Edgemoor neighborhood in Bethesda marked in blue on the map above. One home is left to be completed on Fairfax Road in that area of the community.

Starting next Thursday (May 26, 2016) similar work will begin on: 1) Hampden Lane from Beverly Rd to Exeter Rd; 2) Denton Road from Hampden Lane to Elm St; and 3) Exeter Road from Hampden Ln to Elm St.

Other streets like Clarendon Road and Wessling Lane (any marked in yellow above) will have their mains replaced in a later phase of the project.

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation is simultaneously performing extensive concrete work replacing curbs, gutters and sidewalks that already exist in Edgemoor, and the roads will be resurfaced this fall once utility and concrete work has been completed. Concrete work is expected to end by late summer.
