Residents and those who work in downtown Bethesda, Md., are being warned to get ready for more blasting.

After a temporary break over the holidays, the blasts that are part of the construction project at the corner of Woodmont and Bethesda avenues are set to resume.

The blasts began in early December and had some residents confusing them for earthquakes, a car hitting a building and even a meteor strike The Washington Post reported this month.

The construction project will create a mix of condos, apartments, retail space and more than 900 parking spaces in the heart of downtown Bethesda. Until it's finished, however, the project has a portion of Woodmont Avenue closed and almost 300 parking spaces blocked.

The majority of the blasts will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and there will be a horn sounding 15 minutes and five minutes before they happen.
