The tunnel under Wisconsin Avenue had been closed for several days starting April 18 so a fence could be erected to stop graffiti.
and the DPWT has closed a portion of the Georgetown Branch Interim Trail for drainage repairs
a temporary detour beginning on approximately April 24th. "
"The detour will follow the Freyman Drive, to the Rock Creek Trail to Susanna Lane and Jones Mill Road. Temporary signs will be installed for the detour. All efforts will be made to maximize safety and minimize the duration of time for the detour.
"Construction began on April 17th and may extend into June."
"Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. If you have any questions about the work, please contact the Highway Maintenance Customer Service Section at 240-777-6000."
The good news is (if you're an optimist at least)
If the DPWT work to repair the drainage facilities is successful, then the storm water washouts that have frequently made this section of the trail unusable over the past 10 years will be history.
