Connecticut Avenue Improvement Project

Dear Residents: In an ongoing effort to improve upon the aesthetic appearance of our Town, in conjunction with the Kensington and Vicinity Sector Plan, the State Highway Administration will be Mayor Fosselmanreplacing the existing median along Connecticut Avenue (MD 185) over the next few weeks. The median will be exchanged with a decorative stamped concrete, and additional landscaping will be added between Dupont Avenue and just south of Washington Street. These visual improvements will also include the replacement of the chain-link fence over the CSX Bridge at Howard Avenue with wrought iron like fencing. The Council and I worked closely with the State Highway Administration to make this happen and we would like to thank their staff, Kate Mazzara & Brian Young, for their assistance. We look forward to future development within the Town and hope these small improvements highlight the ambiance of our Town's historical charm; as we move towards a more livable and pedestrian friendly community. If you have any questions about the project, please contact the Town staff: 301-949-2424. Peter Fosselman
