A public hearing will be held regarding the proposed closure of a portion of Hermitage Avenue in Wheaton, on January 27, 2016 at 7:30 PM, in the lobby Auditorium of the Executive Office Building at 101 Monroe Street in Rockville. The portion to be closed will be right off of its intersection with Georgia Avenue (MD 97).

A new "right-of-way" will be created for automobile traffic to reach Hermitage, but the section immediately off Georgia will be closed, and become part of the co-located Wheaton Library and Recreation Center project.

Direct access from Georgia to Hermitage will be permanently cut off. There will still be pedestrian access from Georgia to the rest of Hermitage. At public meetings on the library project, some residents have expressed concerns about the traffic impacts on their neighborhood, if the top of Hermitage is cut off.
