Per MCDOT: On Wednesday, April 26, starting at 7 p.m., the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will hold a hybrid public meeting to discuss the latest progress of the Good Hope Road Shared Use Path Extension project in Silver Spring. The public will have an opportunity to attend in person or virtually to ask questions and provide comments.

This extension will provide a safe, low-stress connection for pedestrians and bicycles of all ages and abilities from neighborhood residences to a local park, nearby schools, places of worship and the Good Hope Neighborhood Recreation Center.
The meeting will be held at Briggs Chaney Middle School located at 1901 Rainbow Drive, Silver Spring, MD 20880. Online registration is required to attend virtually.
