The 16.2 mile long Purple Line is under construction across the alignment from Bethesda to New Carrollton. Currently most of the work happening is heavily related to utility relocation both overhead and underground to make way for the Purple Line. Additional work taking place includes excavation and building retaining walls, creating the Plymouth Street Tunnel, building the operation and maintenance facilities, and work on bridges such as Lyttonsville Place Bridge and Rock Creek Bridge. The construction phase of the project is projected to last through 2026.
Construction of the Purple Line will be impactful as are all major construction projects. Stay up to date with construction activities by subscribing for construction updates.
