Description

This project provides for the design and construction of pedestrian improvements to complete unfinished streetscapes along approximately 2,670 feet of Central Business District (CBD) streets in Bethesda as identified in the Bethesda CBD Sector Plan. This includes 475 feet along Woodmont Avenue between Old Georgetown Road and Cheltenham Drive; 1,825 feet along Wisconsin Avenue between Cheltenham Drive and the northern end of the CBD; and 370 feet along East-West Highway between Waverly Street and Pearl Street. It is intended to fill the gaps between private development projects which have been constructed or are approved in the CBD. The design elements include the replacement and widening (where possible) of sidewalks, new vehicular and pedestrian lighting, street trees, street furniture, and roadway signs. This project addresses streetscape improvements only and does not assume the undergrounding of utilities.

Other

Since the current scope was approved in FY13, developers have been required to construct portions of the work along East-West Highway, Woodmont Avenue and Wisconsin Avenue. This project will study potential replacement segments that can be completed with the savings derived from the developer-built segments. Potential candidate segments on Norfolk Avenue, Woodmont Avenue, and Cordell Avenue will be considered. Coordination with Pepco revealed that the installation of aesthetic coverings on existing utility poles is not technically feasible.
