Capital Crescent Trail From Silver Spring to Bethesda to Close on Sept. 5 for 4 to 5 Years

This is to advise you that earlier today, Purple Line Transit Partners, the public private partnership entity that will construct the Purple Line, issued a formal Trail Closure Notice dated August 29, 2017, announcing that the Capital Crescent Trail running from Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda to Talbot Avenue in Silver Spring will close on Tuesday, September 5, 2017, for four to five years because of construction of the Purple Line.  A copy of that notice is attached here FINAL GTB Trail Notice SS.

If you have any concerns about this precipitous action, with essentially just one week advance notice, you may want to consider contacting Roger Berliner, who is the Montgomery County Council representative serving the North Chevy Chase area and is also currently the President of the County Council.  He can be reached at the following phone number or email address:
