The Montgomery County Dept. of Transportation will close TWO SOUTHBOUND LANES of Rockville Pike (MD 355) between Woodmont Avenue and Wilson Drive, near the Medical Center Metro Station, NIH, and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Naval Support Activity Bethesda.

  • Weather permitting, these two southbound lanes will be closed starting at 10:00 PM on Friday June 16 through 5:00 AM on Monday June 19, 2017.
  • Weather permitting, these two southbound lanes will be closed again starting at 10:00 PM on Friday June 23 through 5:00 AM on Monday June 26, 2017.
  • No lane closures are planned the weekend of June 30 through July 4 in observance of the Independence Day Holiday.

These lane closures are part of the ongoing construction of the Crossing Project at the Medical Center Metro Station, which will establish a shallow pedestrian underpass between NIH and Walter Reed, and deep elevators on the Navy side of MD 355 to the Metrorail mezzanine. Construction of the Crossing Project is anticipated through mid-2021.

The area of Rockville Pike near the Medical Center Metro Station, NIH and Walter Reed is a construction zone. Please pay attention to all signs, and drive, walk or bike carefully through the area.
