Lot 31 Project Update – November 16, 2012

The Lot 31 excavation and sheeting/shoring work continues to be the primary work at the site. The excavator is beginning to encounter small rock areas, but to date the rock has been “rippable” by the excavation equipment. Sheeting/shoring and tie back operations continue around the site also. For reference, at the southwest side of the site the hole is just over 50% excavated.

Automobile traffic is reminded that Woodmont Avenue remains closed from Miller to Bethesda. Only automobiles with business on Miller or who live off Miller Avenue should enter Woodmont Avenue northbound at Wisconsin.

Montgomery County traffic, Police, Bethesda Urban Partnership, and the Lot 31 development team continue to monitor pedestrian and automobile traffic around the Woodmont Avenue closure. There have been no major changes to traffic operations in the last two weeks.

The construction teams will be enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday with their families. The construction site will be closed Thursday, Friday and Saturday (November 22, 23, 24).
