Alternative 1 would not involve improvements to infrastructure or bus service along the Veirs Mill Road study corridor beyond those improvements already planned and programmed.

Alternative 2 would consist of minor infrastructure improvements at selected intersections and the implementation of the proposed WMATA enhanced bus service, the Q9 limited-stop route. Minor infrastructure improvements would include enhanced bus stops with features such as shelters, real time information, or off-board fare collection and widening for the installation of queue jumps at select intersections.

Alternative 3 would consist of widening or repurposing the existing travel lanes and shoulders along Veirs Mill Road to provide dedicated, curb-running bus lanes and a new BRT service. The dedicated lanes would be provided for the BRT service in areas where the improvements would result in minor right-of-way (ROW) impacts and where doing so would improve bus service by increasing the travel speeds.

Alternative 5B would implement new BRT service in a dedicated, bi-directional median lane, or in two dedicated median lanes from MD 28 to Newport Mill Road. In the bi-directional median lane segments, BRT buses would operate in both directions in a single-lane operation. The single, bi-directional lane would widen to two lanes at the BRT stations to allow buses travelling in opposite directions to pass each other. A two-lane, dedicated median section would be provided where feasible. The dedicated lanes would be created by widening to the outside and shifting the existing lanes out to allow the BRT to fit within the median.
