A second construction crane, expected to stand 405 feet tall, will be installed at the site of the future Montgomery County Government office building this weekend for the next steps in the Wheaton Revitalization Project.

To avoid major impacts to traffic and to minimize the overall impact to the area, the west side of Parking Lot 13, adjacent to the construction site, will be temporarily closed from 6 a.m. beginning Friday, Jan.26 through 6 p.m. on Sunday Jan. 28, to allow for the delivery of the tower crane, according to a news release.

Over the next three years, the Wheaton Revitalization Project will transform Wheaton’s central business district with mixed-use, transit-oriented development that includes a 14-story government office building;  approximately 400 below ground parking spaces; retail and residential space; and a new town square.

In addition to the crane, work is expected to begin next week to demolish the former Mid-County Regional Services Center Building on the Reedie Drive side of the project.  The building was vacated in September and will become a town square providing space for public use and entertainment purposes.

The project continues to be on schedule and on budget for completion in 2020.

To view construction on the site, a camera has been installed and can be accessed on the project’s website by clicking here.
