Big construction closures and detours coming to Randolph Road

Starting the week of August 9, Pepco’s contractor is projected to mobilize on Randolph Rd. from Parklawn Dr. to Nebel St. to begin excavation of the 27’x40’ entry pit for the micro- tunnel operation, which is part of the construction of a new Pepco substation. Upon completion of the entry pit, the subcontractor will begin one of two micro- tunnels needed to go under the CSX Railroad tracks to complete the duct bank installation then proceed constructing the second micro-tunnel. This will be followed by the installation of conduit and pump grout throughout both micro-tunnels.

The total duration for the set-up and construction of both tunnels is projected to be completed within six months. Please note, duration dates are subject to change due to weather and permitting requirements.

Pepco is in continued coordination with the Montgomery County Department of Transportation to mitigate traffic overflow with minimal disruptions as possible. The traffic control plan will allow East bound traffic only on Randolph Rd. West bound traffic will be detoured down Parklawn Dr. to Rockville Pike-MD-355Sidewalks on Randolph Rd. will remain open to pedestrians throughout the duration of the micro-tunnel construction. 

While working during the permitted hours, flaggers will be posted to help coordinate traffic going to local businesses. All traffic control measures will remain in place 24/7 until the work is completed.

Hank Dietle’s is Open!

From Bethesda Beat:

The bar held its grand opening concert on Friday, hosting the southern soul band King Soul in a sold-out fundraising event. Dietle’s was 102 years old when it burned down in a massive fire on Valentines Day 2018 due to a discarded cigarette that was lit. The bar was the first establishment in Montgomery County to receive a liquor license after Prohibition, with the license bearing the number 001.


A Montgomery County, Maryland, nightlife institution made a comeback on Friday night after burning down in 2018 and postponing its reopening due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fans of one of the oldest bars in the area came out to dance to the songs of King Soul, a brass-heavy band that took the stage decked out in red suits.

Rockville’s oldest bar opened in 1916 and then closed for over three years after burning in an early-morning fire on Valentine’s Day 2018. The owner of the bar at the time, Tony Huniak, said he was “sick to his stomach” when heard about the fire.
