Road Closure: Forest Glen at CSX RR Crossing (Video)
Forest Glen Road/Linden Lane at the CSX railroad crossing in Silver Spring will close temporarily while the roadway is reconstructed by CSX. The road is expected to close on April 1st and will remain closed for 30 to 45 days. Signs will advise drivers of the closing and detours.
Montgomery County requested the repairs because of the very poor condition of the roadway, and the reconstruction is too extensive to be completed without closing the road. Funding for the project comes from State and Federal monies designated for railroad grade crossing safety.
During the reconstruction, Montgomery County will complete the sidewalk on the south side of the road to provide a separate path for pedestrians and cyclists so they no longer need to walk or ride in travel lanes.
