PEDESTRIANS, CYCLISTS & MOTORISTS URGED TO OBEY SIGNS AND BE CAREFUL AT THE CROSSING PROJECT CONSTRUCTION SITE AT THE MEDICAL CENTER METRO STATION IN BETHESDA

En Espanol

As construction of the Crossing Project at the Medical Center Metro Station moves forward, the Montgomery County Dept. of Transportation {MCDOT} wants to remind people to exercise caution as they walk, bike or travel near the construction zone. Please pay attention to all signs which have been posted for your safety.

PLEASE WALK OR BIKE ONLY ON DESIGNATED CROSSWALKS, SIDEWALKS AND PATHS.   DO NOT WALK IN THE ROAD OR IN A CONSTRUCTION ZONE.

When it is completed by the end of 2021, the Crossing Project will provide a safe and efficient environment for people and vehicles to get through this heavily trafficked area. The Crossing Project has two main components: 1) A shallow pedestrian underpass connecting NIH and the adjacent bus and commuter transit center on the west side of Rockville Pike to Naval Support Activity Bethesda/Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on the east side; and 2) Deep elevators on the Navy side of MD 355 to the Metrorail mezzanine.

In the meantime, MCDOT appreciates the patience of everyone who lives, works or travels through the area. We want this project to be completed as quickly and as safely as you do.

So, please, BE SAFE AND SMART as you make your way through this construction area!
