The new intersection of Old Georgetown Road, Towne Road and Executive Blvd. in North Bethesda, near Pike & Rose, opened to traffic earlier this week.
The Towne Rd extension provides a new connection (parallel to MD-355 Rockville Pike) between Executive Blvd/Josiah Henson Parkway/Montrose Rd. The project also constructed a new cycle track and shared use path (asphalt trail) along the Western edge of Pike & Rose. Tragically, in 2020, 61-year-old James O’Connor was struck and killed by an errant driver while working on utility improvements associated with the project.
