Description

The Rock Creek Trail Pedestrian Bridge spans Veirs Mill Road at Aspen Hill Road in Rockville. It connects portions of the 15-mile hard surface trail from Beach Drive at the District of Columbia line to Lake Needwood in Rock Creek Regional Park. The trail currently crosses Veirs Mill Road at grade at its signalized intersection with Aspen Hill Road. To the north of Veirs Mill Road, the trail is on sidewalk for approximately 0.2 miles traversing Aspen Hill Road, Adrian Street, Baltic Avenue, and finally the access drive to Aspen Hill Local Park before continuing northward as a trail. The proposed pedestrian bridge will provide a grade separated crossing for the Rock Creek Hiker-Biker Trail and eliminates the use of the residential section. It will also provide the opportunity for local residents of the Aspen Hill community to cross Veirs Mill Road on the bridge to access bus transit or other destinations without crossing at grade the busy intersection of Veirs Mill Road and Aspen Hill Road.
