The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will hold an in-person public information meeting to discuss the project details of the Norwood Road Shared Use Path Project in Silver Spring on Tuesday, April 16, at 6:30pm.

Per the news release: The public information meeting will be held in the Cafeteria of the James Hubert Blake High School located at 300 Norwood Road in Silver Spring.

The goal of this project is to build a shared-use path (SUP) on the west (southbound) side of Norwood Road, starting from New Hampshire Avenue (MD 650) and ending about 600 feet north of Eubie Blake. The total length of the path will be about 6,300 linear feet. The path will have a width of 10 feet in most places and 8 feet where there are obstacles. A grass buffer of 2 to 6 feet will separate the existing curb and the shared-use path where feasible. Some parts of the existing Norwood Road shoulder will be modified to reduce impacts to the businesses and property owners.

The proposed shared use path will provide a safe, low-stress connection for pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities from neighborhood residences to shopping centers, nearby schools and places of worship. Extra protections will be implemented to preserve streams that provide habitats for diverse aquatic life.

Online registration is required to attend. An email with a Zoom link will be sent to registrants via email. The public is encouraged to visit the project website and provide feedback via the online comment form or via email to the Project Manager, Khursheed Bilgrami at [email protected]. All information provided, including questions and comments, will become a matter of public record.

Interpreter services will be provided upon request with five business days advance notice by contacting Lori Main by email at [email protected] or call 240-777-7271.
