Several improvement projects are on their way on the Capital Crescent Trail that will affect access and regular use of the trail. Montgomery Parks and a private firm will perform ongoing tree work on the Capital Crescent Trail from Dorset Ave. to Woodmont Ave. throughout June. The work should not limit trail access, however, trail users are urged to use caution around work areas.
Also, a portion of the Capital Crescent Trail just south of Bethesda Ave. will be closed for about two weeks to allow for trail improvements that are a part of the Lot 31-apartment building construction project, the Flats. Trail users will be directed onto a detour along a new public pathway. Pedestrians will be able to access to sidewalks on Woodmont Ave., and bicyclists will be able to use the newly marked bike lanes.
