The Latest on the Purple Line Project

After years of planning and design, the Purple Line project has begun construction. This work includes the removal of trees and underbrush, establishing fences and environmental protection along the work zone. Utility investigations will also be taking place at many locations along the corridor.

Here’s a wrap-up of work that is underway:

  • The Georgetown Branch Interim Trail is closed until the new trail opens in 2021.
  • Arliss Street in Silver Spring between Flower Avenue and Walden Road is scheduled to be closed through 2020 to allow the construction of the east side of the Plymouth Tunnel. This site, adjacent to the Giant Food Store, will have a fenced construction yard. Access to the Arliss Knolls Townhouses will be maintained.
  • Plymouth Street will also be temporarily closed during the construction of the west side of the tunnel and Manchester Station. However, access for local traffic will be maintained.
  • Work has begun on the site of the Bethesda Metro South Entrance located on Elm Street in Bethesda. This station will eventually provide a connection to Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). This operation will continue for several years.
  • General preconstruction work, including tree removal and site prep, has started along the western side of Veterans Parkway in Riverdale.

Silver Spring Transit Center Opens Sunday (Finally)!

The Silver Spring Transit Center will finally open this Sunday, September 20th. Buses will begin using the new facility at 4am on Sunday. Much-delayed and over-budget – there’s no ribbon-cutting planned. “No pomp and circumstance. It will just open,” said Metro spokeswoman Sherri Ly told the Washington Post.

Montgomery County Councilmember Tom Hucker told WTOP, “Bus riders probably ought to allow themselves a little extra time to figure out exactly where to go. I’ve been through a tour of the Transit Center and it’s a very large facility. It’ll take a little while to figure out exactly where to go.”

The transit center will be a major hub connecting local, regional and commuter buses to Metrorail and eventually the Purple Line.
