Look for a new traffic pattern to improve safety at the intersection of Little Falls Parkway and the Capital Crescent Trail.  Work will start late December to improve safety at the trail crossing.  Little Falls Parkway will merge from two lanes to one each way in the vicinity of the Capital Crescent Trail intersection.  The speed limit will change from 35 mph to 25 mph.  Additional signs alerting motorists of pedestrians and bicyclists will also be installed.

CCT: TRAIL DETOUR in Downtown Bethesda! MONDAY May 26, 2015 until further notice

(about 2 weeks)

Please note that beginning Tuesday, May 26, 2015 the Capital Crescent Trail will begin to be detoured at Lot 31, between Bethesda Avenue and The Bethesda Rest plaza, to allow for the improvements to the (trail) CCT adjacent to the Lot 31 construction site to be constructed. The detour will last approximately 2 weeks, according to the developer.

The CCT trail will be detoured to the southern path of Lot 31 to Woodmont Avenue. Pedestrians will then utilize the sidewalks on Woodmont to continue on the trail or to reach Bethesda Avenue. Bikes will utilize the bike lanes on the roadway. To travel north bikers should utilize the mid-block crossing to reach the bike lane, traveling south bikes should cross at Bethesda/Woodmont to reach the southbound bike lane. (Variable message) VMS signs and directional signs will be placed directing the CCT detour. Please note: all access to the public parking garages will remain open.

In addition, the NW corner of Woodmont / Bethesda intersection will also undergo modifications at this time. Pedestrians will still be able to cross at this intersection, but should with caution. Signs will be set up for this improvement area also.

Thank you for your patience,

Coalition for the Capital Crescent Trail Management
