Update: Cambria Suites at Town Center
Construction of covered walkways will begin today at the Cambria Suites Hotel construction site at Rockville Town Center, city officials announced last week.
Covered walkways will be built above the Middle Lane, Maryland Ave and East Montgomery/Regal Row sidewalks and should be complete in three weeks.
But in order to accommodate the covered walkways, street trees and streetlights along Maryland Avenue will be removed. The Wednesday Farmer’s Market will go on as usual, city officials said.
