Rally in Support of Old Georgetown Road Safety Improvements (Added Bike Lanes) to Take Place Sunday, January 8

The Action Committee for Transit is hosting a rally in support of the Maryland State Highway Administration’s decision to improve safety on nearly two miles of MD 187 (Old Georgetown Road) in North Bethesda. The safety improvements on MD 187, between south of I-495 (Capital Beltway) and Nicholson Lane, converted one travel lane in each direction in order to add buffered bicycle lanes and the installation of flex posts to outline the new bicycle lanes.

“Please join us on Sunday, January 8, to show support for the State Highway Administration’s decision to enact a road diet when replacing a portion of Old Georgetown Road. Biking? Meet at 10:30 am at Medical Center Metro Or 11:00 am at Old Georgetown Rd & West Cedar Ln. Then ride the Old Georgetown bike lanes to Nicholson Ln and back! Walking or rolling? Meet at 11:15 am at Old Georgetown Rd & Tuckerman Ln, then walk or roll past future Woodward HS to Edson Ln (0.8 miles) or Nicholson Ln (1.6 miles) and back (Parking at Timberlawn Local Park, 10800 Gloxinia Dr) Short rally for safety at West Cedar Ln, after the ride!”

Petitions have been created in support of and against the bike lanes that have been added to that portion of Old Georgetown Rd. Featured photo courtesy of the ‘Support the SHA redesign of Old Georgetown Road’ petition.
