Maryland Department of Transportation to Hold Virtual Meeting on Improvements for Connecticut Avenue at Jones Bridge Road on Wednesday, Feb. 17

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 17, will hold a virtual information meeting about its upcoming project that will lead to road improvements at the intersection of MD 185 (Connecticut Avenue) at Jones Bridge Road and Kensington Parkway in Chevy Chase.

The project plan is to improve safety and traffic operations at the intersection and to enhance pedestrian and bicycle connectivity and accessibility. The project will include widening Jones Bridge Road to accommodate an additional left turn lane from eastbound Jones Bridge Road to northbound MD 185.

Project construction is scheduled to begin in spring. A link to the project web page can be found at https://mdot-sha-md185-jones-bridge-rd-kensing-pky-mo5935870-maryland.hub.arcgis.com/
