The State Highway Administration is in the final stretch of a project that will bring a flashing light pedestrian crosswalk to Bradley Boulevard.
Beginning Friday at 7 p.m., SHA’s contractor for the work will begin the final paving for the project at Bradley Boulevard and Strathmore Street in Chevy Chase. Weather permitting, the removal of the top layer of asphalt, resurfacing and painting of new pavement markings should be done by noon on Sunday.
Parking restrictions may be in effect during the work and the SHA wants neighbors to know the work can be loud and disruptive. The resurfacing will mean a single lane closure, possibly in both directions throughout the weekend.
More than 22,000 vehicles use the section of Bradley Boulevard a day, which is also a popular pedestrian crossing spot for those traveling from apartments and condos to downtown Bethesda.
The $425,000 project includes the installation of a flashing signal for pedestrians wishing to cross Bradley Boulevard and the installation of a median.
The SHA contractor for the project is D.C.-based Fort Meyer Construction.
