This week, the Westbard Square project team expanded their closure of Westbard Avenue near the current Westwood Center and future Westbard Square, which is currently under construction.
Westbard Avenue is now closed between Ridgefield Road and the entrance to the existing shopping center. All vehicular traffic must access the Westbard Shops from Massachusetts Avenue, and all Northbound traffic on Westbard Avenue is now diverted into the shopping center. The sidewalk alongside the newly-closed segment of Westbard remains open.
Ridgefield Road is currently closed between Westbard Avenue and MD-190 River Road for roadway realignment as part of the Westbard Square project. Westbard Square will close the existing Giant once the new grocery store and retail space opens. Next phases of the Westbard Square project, currently projected to be completed in 2027, include townhome and apartment construction.
