A popular streetery created during the pandemic in Bethesda, Maryland, not only appears to be here to stay, it may get some improvements.
Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation has a public meeting on that plan Wednesday night.
“I think it’s a great idea,” Daniel Babcock told WTOP. “I walk through a lot with my dogs so I’m always out and about in the neighborhood.”
Alfred Delena, who works nearby, said that “people seem to like it, it seems to bring people out.”
You can take a look at the plans to improve the streetery on the county’s website.
In a new release, the county said the goal of the future improvements would be “to enhance the streetscape and the existing streetery while permitting the safe movement of pedestrians and bicyclists through the space, loading and unloading needs for local businesses, as well as considerations for vehicular traffic.”
Streeteries on Newell Street in Silver Spring and on Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda are shutting down.
