Six Montgomery County bridges under repair
Drivers should be alert for lane closings as the Maryland State Highway Administration cleans and paints these six bridges:
-- I-495 (Capital Beltway) bridge over Kensington Parkway in Kensington
-- Route 185 (Connecticut Avenue) bridge over Rock Creek in Kensington
-- Route 410 (East-West Highway) bridge over Rock Creek in Chevy Chase
-- I-495 (Capital Beltway) bridge over Seven Locks Road in Potomac
-- Bridge carrying the southbound I-270 ramp to I-495 inner loop in Bethesda
-- Bridge carrying the southbound I-270 ramp to southbound Route 355 (Wisconsin Avenue) in Bethesda.
Work already has begun on the I-495 bridge over Kensington Parkway and the Route 410 bridge over Rock Creek, the SHA says. They should be done by mid-November, and the work will shift to the I-495 bridge over Seven Locks Road and the Route 185 bridge over Rock Creek.
On the Route 185 and 410 bridges, the SHA will close lanes on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There also may be some additional lane closings at other off-peak hours.
On the I-270 and I-495 bridges, look for single lane closings overnight between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sundays through Fridays. There may be double lane closings overnight Mondays through Fridays between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
On the Seven Locks Road and Kensington Parkway bridges, watch for flaggers directing traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and overnight Sundays through Thursdays between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.
