Development Update: Week of December 23, 2019

December 20th, 2019

Marriott International Headquarters

Week of December 23, 2019

This week, no night work will be taking place. Along Wisconsin Avenue, large-scale concrete pouring operations will continue during daytime hours. This week, concrete placements are scheduled for Monday and Thursday only.

Along Woodmont Avenue, jersey barriers have been installed along the northbound lane to provide pedestrian access with separation from vehicular traffic. This week, this walkway will be closed Monday and Tuesday, but will reopen Christmas Day. A covered walkway will soon be constructed and is anticipated to open to pedestrians beginning January 6.

Nearby on Woodmont Avenue, stormwater and sanitary lines are being installed into the building, though all ongoing work will be contained within the site for the remainder of construction. Each phase of the underground utility work is estimated in this site plan.


Bimonthly construction updates

The development team is committed to an open dialog with the community and holds bi-monthly construction updates open to the general public. These updates are generally scheduled for the first Tuesday of every other month and take place in downtown Bethesda at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center located at 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda, MD 20814. The next construction update will be announced in early 2020.
