County:Prince George's Project Number:PG624_21
US 0001 BALTIMORE AVENUE SRI - COLLEGE AVENUE/REGENTS DRIVE TO MD 193 (UNIVERSITY BOULEVARD)
Project Name:
US 1, Baltimore Avenue

Location of Project:
SRI - COLLEGE AVENUE/REGENTS DRIVE TO MD 193 (UNIVERSITY BOULEVARD)

Description:
Reconstruct US 1 from College Avenue to MD 193 (Segment 1). Bicycle and pedestrian facilities will be included where appropriate (1.5 miles).
 
Scope:
The goals established for the US 1 project are as follows:

Driver safety and vehicle flow - Improve the roadway's ability to safely manage current and predicted traffic volumes at a more appropriate level of service.

Aesthetics - Stimulate the emergence of a 'Sense of Place' along the US 1 corridor by developing streetscape plans that, through the use of landscaping, utility relocation and other unifying elements, present users with consistent and coherent themes.

Pedestrian - Identify methods for reshaping US 1 as a pedestrian friendly facility that will improve pedestrian safety and circulation.

Bicyclists - identify practical measures for the implementation of safe and accessible facility accommodations for individuals wishing to travel via bicycle within the project limits.

Transit - investigate opportunities for improving transit in the corridor in coordination with the City of College Park, University of Maryland , Prince Georges county, the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
 
What Is Under Study:
The Purple Line, a project sponsored by the MTA, will overlap this project at Rossborough Lane. Coordination between MTA, SHA and other agencies is ongoing.

The University of Maryland and SHA are re-evaluating the need for the turn lanes on northbound US 1 at the Campus Drive intersection.
