Update from MCDOT: “Unfortunately, the proposed extension of Montrose Pkwy between Parklawn Dr. & Viers Mill Rd. was not funded. We are updating the related page on our website. MCDOT is requesting funding for a study to add a bridge at the CSX Railroad tracks.”
Article previously provided the project description and construction dates from the MCDOT website.
Montrose Parkway East did not receive funding.
The project description: to construct a new 4-lane divided parkway (A-270) as recommended in the North Bethesda/Garrett Park and Aspen Hill Master Plans. This will be an extension of Montrose Parkway West and the SHA MD 355 project, per MCDOT.
This project would have constructed the segment of Montrose Parkway between its current terminus east of the existing Montrose Parkway/Rockville Pike (MD 355) interchange and Parklawn Drive. The project included a bridge over Nebel Street and the CSX railroad tracks and includes a “single point urban” interchange at Parklawn Drive.
MCDOT is requesting funding for a study to add a bridge at the CSX railroad tracks.
