Dual NORTHBOUND lane closures on Rockville Pike in Bethesda at NIH/Walter Reed

The Montgomery County Dept. of Transportation will close two northbound lanes of Rockville Pike (MD 355) between Woodmont Avenue and Center Drive, near the Medical Center Metro Station, NIH, and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Naval Support Activity Bethesda.

Weather permitting, these two northbound lanes will be closed starting at 10:00 PM on Friday, May 19 through 5:00 AM on Monday, May 22.

These lane closures are part of the ongoing construction of the Crossing Project at the Medical Center Metro Station, which will establish a shallow pedestrian underpass between NIH and Walter Reed, and deep elevators on the Navy side of MD 355 to the Metrorail mezzanine. Construction of the Crossing Project is anticipated through mid-2021.
