Whitman Basketball Heading To State Semifinal — The Walt Whitman High Schools boys basketball team clinched a spot in Thursday’s Class 4A semifinals at Comcast Center with a 49-44 win against Clarksburg on Friday. The 4A West Region title is the team’s first since 2006, when the Vikings won it all. Whitman is set to play at 7 p.m. on Thursday against 4A East champs Annapolis. [The Gazette]

Bethesda Briefing Book — If you’re at all interested in the upcoming Bethesda Downtown master plan, this “Bethesda Briefing Book” from county planners is a must-read. It has a detailed run-down of existing conditions in the area, including the largest employers, resident demographics, traffic ratings at each major intersection and parks.

BRAC Road Project Update — A utility relocation along Rockville Pike is done and so is an intersection improvement project at Jones Bridge Road and Connecticut Avenue, though pavement and signal work will require the closing of the far-right lane during the day this spring. The State Highway Administration will also have to close a lane of Rockville Pike as it installs a retaining wall at NIH near Wilson Drive. Then, there’s the Cedar Lane intersection improvement project, for which a start date hasn’t been announced. It’ll be sometime in June and will last most of summer.

Got A Photo? Add It To Our Flickr Pool — We’re looking for photos of Bethesda, Chevy Chase and North Bethesda. Landmarks, landscapes, food, dogs, people, traffic, phone pics and most anything you can think of that’s Bethesda-related fits the bill and could be put to use in our “Morning Notes” post. [Flickr]
