Drainage Improvement Project Begins Nov. 30th Along Connecticut Avenue
The State Highway Administration is planning to begin a drainage improvement project on Nov. 30th to construct new channel gutters along southbound Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase at the intersections of Woodbine Street and Blackthorn Street. The project will address community concerns about standing water after rainstorms.
Work crews have started at the Connecticut Avenue-Blackthorn Street intersection and then will proceed to Woodbine Street, according to a news update. Motorists should expect temporary lane closures and restricted access to Blackthorn and Woodbine while the work is underway. Signs will be posted to alert drivers.
Crews are planning to work on weekdays, except holidays. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
