On Tuesday, February 17 at 7 p.m. (weather permitting), crews will shift traffic lanes on MD 355 (Rockville Pike) for a new traffic pattern at the West Cedar Lane intersection. Traffic on MD 355 between North Drive and Locust Hill Road will shift to the west side of the road where widening of MD 355 recently took place.
While the State Highway Administration will maintain three through lanes in both directions during peak travel times, drivers should remain alert for a changing traffic pattern at the intersection.
Turning movements from West Cedar Lane onto northbound and southbound MD 355 will not be impacted by this phase of work and nearby sidewalks and trails will remain accessible. Later this year, all traffic will shift to the east side of the road to continue the culvert work.
Weather permitting, construction will be complete in late summer 2016.
