On MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, weather permitting, the right-hand SOUTHBOUND lane of Rockville Pike will be closed between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM between Wilson Drive (NIH) and Woodmont Avenue. There will be no impact to any of the bus/shuttle stops in that area, and both South Drive and Gateway Drive will remain open.
This work is 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 Naval Support Activity Bethesda/Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and deep elevators on the Navy side of MD 355 to the Metrorail mezzanine. Construction of the Crossing Project is anticipated through 2021.
Please note that the area of Rockville Pike near the Medical Center Metro Station, NIH and NSAB/Walter Reed is a construction zone. Please pay attention to all signs, and drive, walk or bike carefully through the area.
