Construction of New Facility
When the state widened the roads in 1970, Reed Brothers Dodge broke ground for a new state-of-the-art 26,000 square foot showroom and Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep service complex on Route 355 at 15955 Frederick Road Rockville Maryland. The new building, which was a complete automotive service and sales facility, was located on a five-acre tract.
