NOTICE OF CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY
Marriott International Headquarters
Week of April 29, 2019:
Underground utility improvements and restoration work continues along Woodmont Avenue and will continue through July. As the work at the intersection of Woodmont and Norfolk Avenues is quite extensive, it will be completed during nighttime hours beginning this week to mimize potential impact on traffic and pedestrians.
At all times, two-way traffic will be maintained as reasonably 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, mass excavation and hauling operations continue along Wisconsin Avenue and are anticipated to 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 construction site. Sidewalk closures remain in place along sections of Woodmont, Norfolk and Wisconsin Avenues (view map of closures here).
As additional temporary closures may be necessary, pedestrians will be detoured to the east sidewalk of Wisconsin Avenue using nearby crosswalks as needed for their safety. Please be vigilant and pay close attention to signage for any detours that may be necessary. Our number one priority is the safety and security of pedestrians and commuters around the construction site.
