The westbound lanes of Randolph Road between Nebel Street and Parklawn Drive will close starting today, August 30, to make way for Pepco construction.
The westbound lanes of Randolph Road between Nebel Street and Parklawn Drive will be closed starting Monday, as Pepco begins construction for a new substation. The eastbound lanes will remain open, and businesses on the westbound side will be open — as will the sidewalks.
The substation will supply power to the Bethesda and White Flint area, according to a Montgomery County news release. The construction is expected to last 6 months, it said.
“Substation work started in 2020 and associated line work will be performed with overhead and underground construction along Nebel Street, Marinelli Road, Old Georgetown Road, Citadel Avenue, Randolph Road, and Parklawn Drive,” the county’s news release says. “The substation project is expected to be completed by December 2023.”
