State Highway Administration to Temporarily Close Ramp from Northbound Rockville Pike to Beltway Outer Loop Disrupting Traffic from June 5-9 for Drainage Project

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration will temporarily close the ramp from northbound MD 355 (Rockville Pike) to the outer loop (westbound) of the Capital Beltway (I-495) for several hours a day next week to complete a drainage project. Work will start Monday, June 5, and will be completed by Friday, June 9, weather permitting.

The ramp will be closed weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. During the work, motorists can expect to be detoured using Grosvenor Lane to Cheshire Drive to MD 187 (Old Georgetown Road) and back to the outer loop of I-495. The detour length is approximately 1.7 miles.

The State Highway Administration is asking drivers to reduce speeds approaching, and while in, active work zones.

Questions about the project can be directed to the SHA District 3 Office at 301-513-7300.
