According to WSSC, “Equipment & materials for the repair will be at the site shortly. The pipe is 71 yrs old. All lanes open now but right SB lane just north of Strathmore Ave will be closed soon. Dropping river temps = increase in water main breaks. Thx 4 ur patience.” and “TRAFFIC ALERT: Rockville Pike right SB lane is closed b/w Golf Lane & Strathmore Rd. Pls take is slow in the work zone!”

Is fascinating how when something negative happens you call this Rockville but when pushing product for venture capitalists and greedy real estate developers you call it Borth Nethesda

Hello, we’ve responded to a similar comment from you and let you know that we use the address provided (either by the entity providing the information or by Google). We can assure you it’s not the conspiracy you think it is.

Laugh, I believe you just do stenography on these stories, doesn’t change that whoever dictates these to you uses Rockville when it’s a negative story and North Bethesda when trying to sell something.

Though if you’re using google instead of your knowledge of Moco history and geography, that’s not good
