UPDATE: This closure has been delayed until August 30.
Beginning Monday, August 30, Westbound Randolph Road will be closed between Parklawn Drive and Nebel Street. The closure is expected to last approximately six months, meaning that section of Randolph Road likely won’t reopen until spring 2022.
The closure is needed for underground electrical work as part of Pepco’s new White Flint Substation.
Traffic heading westbound on Randolph Road will be diverted to Parklawn Drive and then directed to Rockville Pike (MD-355).
Crews on Randolph Road will be excavating entry pits and then installing micro-tunnels under the Randolph Road railroad crossing. Crews will then install conduit and an electrical duct bank. Sidewalks along Randolph are supposed to remain open during the project.
