Per MCDOT: On Tuesday, April 18, starting at 6:30 p.m., the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will hold a public information meeting about the latest progress of the McComas Avenue Neighborhood Greenway project in Wheaton. The public will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide comments. The McCommas Avenue Neighborhood Greenway project aims to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety on McComas Avenue near Wheaton Mall. The project limit is from St. Paul Street to Georgia Avenue including portions of Douglas Avenue and Windham Lane. Neighborhood Greenways are streets with low motorized traffic volumes and speeds, designed and designated to give walking and bicycling priority by using signs, pavement markings, and speed and volume management measures to calm traffic and discourage through trips by motor vehicles to create safe, convenient use of streets by pedestrians and cyclists. Design elements can include traffic diverters at key intersections, traffic circles or mini-roundabouts, traffic calming, shared lane markings, crossing improvements, and wayfinding signage to guide bicyclists along the route and to key destinations among other things.
Online registration is required to attend. This meeting will be accessible both in-person and virtually. The in-person meeting will be held at the Kentmont Clubhouse (2900 Faulkner Pl, Kensington, MD 20895), and the virtual meeting link along with Zoom connection instructions will be emailed to you on the morning of the public meeting. Questions and comments will become a matter of public record.
The public is encouraged to review the project files posted on the project website prior to attending the meeting.
Comments and questions may be submitted to the Project Manager, Angel Cheng, through this online comment form or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interpreter services will be provided upon request with five business days advance notice by contacting Angel Cheng.
