Location of Project:
16TH STREET TO FOREST GLEN ROAD
Forest Glen Road to 16th. Street. The MD 97 Montgomery Hills project will evaluate safety and accessibility issues on MD 97. Sidewalks and wide curb lanes to accommodate bicycles will be included where appropriate.
The purpose of the MD 97 Montgomery Hills Project Planning Study is to establish a balanced approach to transportation within the MD 97 (Georgia Avenue) corridor by evaluating existing vehicular, pedestrian, and bicyclist mobility and safety, while accommodating proposed transit enhancements and establishing a sense of place within the Montgomery Hills community. A Purpose and Need Workshop held March 13, 2012 provided the public with an opportunity to review technical documentation of environmental and traffic data and provide comment. Click
