Intercounty Connector Advancing
A road in northern Silver Spring will permanently close today as the eastern side of the $2.4 billion intercounty connector highway program develops.
The Maryland State Highway Administration is shutting off a section of Dogwood Drive at Briggs Chaney Road in northern Silver Spring. People who have been using Dogwood Drive will be detoured to Gateshead Manor Way and then Aston Manor Drive to reach Briggs Chaney Road.
Drivers on both sides of Route 29 can now see staging areas for construction of the connector. As work begins on "Contract C" between Old Columbia Pike and I-95, the Dogwood Drive section is closing to make way for construction of a bridge over the connector at Briggs Chaney Road.
The connector, scheduled to open in 2011, will link I-370/I-270 in Montgomery County with I-95 and U.S. Route 1 in Prince George's County.
