Description

This project provides shared use path improvements along 4.7 miles of MacArthur Boulevard from I-495 to the District of Columbia. To increase capacity and enhance safety for users, the existing shared-use path along the south side of MacArthur Boulevard will be widened, wherever feasible, to an eight-foot paved width with a five-foot wide grass buffer provided between the path and the roadway. In addition, to encourage alternate modes of travel and to accommodate the needs of on-road commuters and experienced bicyclists, the roadway itself will be widened, wherever feasible, to a consistent 26-foot pavement width, essentially adding a three-foot wide shoulder to each side of the existing 20-foot pavement width. The project will also provide safety improvements along MacArthur Boulevard to enhance overall safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike.
