10/24/2017Montgomery County Council and the County Executive support Alternative 2.5 as the recommended alternative and to retain Alternative 3 for the master plan option. Alternative 2.5 was developed that combined the runningway of Alternative 2 with the BRT service improvements of Alternative 3. By retaining Alternative 3 as the master plan alternative, this allows the County to reserve the necessary right-of-way along Veirs Mill Road as properties are redeveloped.
