In-Person Public Meeting on the Proposed Carroll Avenue Separated Bike Lanes Project in Silver Spring to be Held on Tuesday, March 7

by Patrick Herron

Per MCDOT: On Tuesday, March 7 starting at 7 p.m., the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will hold an in-person public meeting to discuss the Carroll Avenue Separated Bike Lanes project that will add a low-stress bikeway to Carroll Avenue between Merrimac Drive and Piney Branch Road (MD 320) in the Takoma/Langley Crossroads area in Silver Spring. This facility will help to provide connections for cyclists to the future Purple Line station at Takoma/Langley Transit Center. The exact facility type has not yet been determined.

The project is in the beginning stages of design, and MCDOT is working to advance the design to 30% and will present several proposed concepts at an in-person meeting that will be held at New Hampshire Estates Elementary School located at 8720 Carroll Avenue in Silver Spring. Public input is encouraged and will influence the design. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

Meeting materials will be provided in both English and Spanish, and Spanish translation will be available at the meeting.
