Development Update: Week of April 15, 2019

NOTICE OF CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY
Marriott International Headquarters

Week of April 15, 2019:

Earlier this month, the ramp into the construction site for mass excavation and hauling operations was relocated from Woodmont Avenue to Wisconsin Avenue, significantly reducing construction traffic along Woodmont Avenue. It is anticipated that these operations will continue through July with concrete operations begining in mid-May. Throughout this project, the approved Montgomery County and State Highway traffic control plans will ensure minimal impact to traffic flow around the site.

Underground utility improvements and restoration work continues to move northbound along Woodmont Avenue toward Norfolk Avenue and is anticipated to continue through July. As the work at the intersection of Woodmont and Norfolk Avenues is quite deep, this work will be completed during nighttime hours to mimize potential impact to traffic and pedestrians. During this time, two-way traffic will be maintained as often as possible.

The timeline for all upcoming phases of the utility work is estimated in this site plan. Please note, this plan does not include anticipated work performed by Pepco.

Meanwhile, sidewalk closures remain in place along sections of Woodmont, Norfolk and Wisconsin Avenues (view map of closures here). Additional temporary closures will be necessary during this time. Pedestrians will be detoured to the east sidewalk of Wisconsin Avenue during work hours and should take advantage of nearby crosswalks as needed. Please be vigilant and pay close attention to signage as detours may change occasionally. Our number one priority is the safety and security of pedestrians and commuters in and around the construction site.
