Demolition Begins On Future Hub Of County Government In White Flint

Demolition began Thursday on the future site of Fire Station #23, a police substation and offices for a future White Flint Urban Partnership

For now, Maple Avenue is a dead end road home to a row of auto repair shops.

Over the next decade, it will become the Montgomery County government’s hub in White Flint, meant to serve a rapidly redeveloping area.

On Thursday, crews began demolishing buildings on Maple Avenue at the site of what is to become a new, five-bay fire station with a police substation and offices for a yet-to-be developed Urban Partnership.

This summer, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation is expected to start a project that will connect Maple Avenue to Chapman Avenue, providing another north-south connector from Randolph Road to Old Georgetown Road. Maple Avenue will take on the Chapman Avenue name.

The roughly $28 million Fire Station #23 project is set for construction in fiscal years 2018-2020, according to the recommended capital budget for the next six years.
