Emergency repairs on an underground cable mean one lane of a short stretch of Wisconsin Avenue will be closed this week.
Verizon needs to repair a cable along northbound Wisconsin Avenue between Dorset Avenue and Grafton Street. The State Highway Administration has granted Verizon permission to work 24 hours a day until the work is completed.
According to a notification from Chevy Chase Village, workers will be working in two, 12-hour shifts and should be finished by Saturday, Aug. 9.
County officials are advising those who use the three-lane road to factor in some extra time, especially during rush hour.
