About Bethesda

Bethesda, MD is a bustling urban center located just northwest of Washington, D.C. Known for its vibrant downtown area, Bethesda is home to numerous restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions. The city is also a hub for healthcare and biomedical research, with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) headquartered in Bethesda.

When it comes to freight transportation, Bethesda is well-connected to the rest of the region and beyond. The city is served by several major highways, including Interstate 495 (the Capital Beltway) and Interstate 270, making it easy for trucks to transport goods in and out of the area. Additionally, Bethesda is located near the busy Port of Baltimore, providing access to international shipping routes.

Historically, Bethesda was a stop on the B&O Railroad's Metropolitan Branch, which connected Washington, D.C. to Point of Rocks, Maryland. The railroad played a crucial role in the development of Bethesda as a transportation hub, allowing for the easy movement of goods and passengers between the city and other parts of the region. Today, while the railroad tracks have been removed, the legacy of Bethesda's transportation history can still be seen in the city's layout and infrastructure.
