County:Montgomery Project Number:MO224_11
MD 0097 GEORGIA AVENUE 16TH STREET TO FOREST GLEN ROAD
Project Name:
MD 97, Georgia Ave.

Location of Project:
16TH STREET TO FOREST GLEN ROAD

Description:
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.
 
Scope:
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 Purpose and Need Document, June 2012 for documentation on project area conditions.

 
What is under study:
The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is completing detailed engineering and environmental documents on four of the seven "Preliminary Alternatives" presented at the Alternatives Public Workshop held at the Woodlin Elementary School on June 25, 2013. Results of these studies will be presented at the Location and Design Public Hearing to be held in the Fall 2015. A Newsletter distributed in the Fall of 2014, describes the "Alternatives Retained for Detailed Study" (referred to as "ARDS") and the reasons Alternatives were dropped from consideration.
