    Preparing for increased traffic following a Bethesda Base Realignment and Closure, the Maryland Department of Transportation is overseeing utility relocation for a widening of Jones Bridge Road near Connecticut Avenue.
     
    Midday lane closures are scheduled for the next year near the intersection, less than a mile from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Crews are permitted to intermittently close lanes on Connecticut Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Some work will take place during overnights as well.
     
    The "BRAC impact" on drivers is expected to be minimal as long as crews adhere to the state's prescribed work hours.
     
    The project will widen Jones Bridge Road by adding a third left turn lane onto northbound Connecticut Avenue and lengthening the existing turn lanes.
     
    The utility relocation, performed by Pepco and Washington Gas, is in progress. The roadwork is scheduled to begin late next year.
