Description

This project provides for completing final design and construction for the master planned dual bikeway along Bradley Boulevard (MD 191) which includes two 11' traffic lanes, two 5' on-road bike lanes, an 8' off-road shared use path on the north side of the road, and a 5' sidewalk on the south side of the road. The project limits extend approximately one mile from about 450' south of Wilson Lane to Glenbrook Road. The project will coordinate with a separate MCDOT intersection improvement project to connect the existing sidewalk on Bradley Boulevard east of Goldsboro Road and an existing sidewalk on Wilson Lane to improve pedestrian safety and provide access to transit stops and the Bethesda Central Business District. The project also includes two additional un-signalized crosswalks across Bradley Boulevard at Durbin Road and Pembroke Road, drainage improvements, and pedestrian lighting. This project also includes the land acquisitions and utility relocations that support the roadway improvements. The project is broken down into phases. Phase I includes everything except for the shared-use path, which is assumed in Phase II.

Justification

The Montgomery County Bikeway Master Plan, adopted in November 2018, recommends a north-side sidepath and conventional bike lanes in this segment of Bradley Boulevard. The service area is predominantly residential with several schools (Landon, Whitman HS, and Pyle MS) that could potentially generate bike-trips. Bethesda Row and other shopping centers are located a half mile to the east. There are 17 Montgomery County Ride-On bus stops (8 westbound and 9 eastbound) within the project area. This project will comply with area master plans, improve bicycle and pedestrian facilities, encourage bicycle usage, and improve safety for all users. It will improve access to major destinations in and beyond the project area and ultimately connect to other sidewalk and bicycle facilities.

Other

The project will help the County achieve its Vision Zero goals to reduce deaths and serious injuries on County roadways to zero by 2030.

Fiscal Note

The project can be built in phases to better absorb cost and fiscal constraints. The cost estimate is based on preliminary design only. A more accurate cost estimate will be prepared upon completion of final design.
