Newly repaved Connecticut Avenue at East West Highway, via TrafficLand.comThe emergency repaving job along Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase will continue overnight into Thursday morning.

According to Chevy Chase Village, State Highway contractors will resume repaving Chevy Chase Circle and side street intersections along Connecticut Avenue at about 8 p.m. Wednesday.

This time, the work won’t extend into the morning rush hour. Instead, it’s set to run to 5 a.m. on Thursday and Friday, weather permitting.

A week ago, State Highway Administration officials said crews milled off the top two inches of asphalt and found the road base pavement “to be in an advanced state of deterioration.” That meant the crews had to pour a stronger mix of asphalt in a shorter time period, leading to lane closures in the middle of some morning and afternoon rush hour periods.

The work that resumes tonight will be a lot less disruptive, but high noise levels and rolling lane closures are still expected.
