List Of Bethesda Daily Street Closures In Support Of Restaurants
While the majority of counties in the State of Maryland have entered phase two in reopening businesses, Montgomery County is still in phase one of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and reopening. This means restaurants are only allowed to have dining options outdoors including spaced seating.
In order to accommodate and meet the requirements set by the county, restaurants are going to need a lot more space.
The “Bethesda Streetery” program was created to do just that. Similar in fashion to Ellsworth Drive in downtown Silver Spring, several downtown Bethesda streets are closed to vehicular traffic starting today. They will be closed everyday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Pedestrian use will reign and restaurants can serve customers to additional outdoor seating they otherwise wouldn’t be able to
The following is the list of closed streets to vehicular traffic,
- Norfolk Avenue, between St. Elmo Avenue and Cordell Avenue.
- Norfolk Avenue, between Cordell Avenue and Del Ray Aven Woodmont Avenue, between Elm Street and Bethesda Avenue.
- Veterans Park, corner of Norfolk and Woodmont avenues.
- Cordell Avenue, between the parking garage near Old Georgetown Road and Triangle Towers (Streetery hours on Cordell will be Wednesday through Sunday, 4-10 p.m.)
