Description

This project provides for design, right-of-way acquisition, utility relocations, and construction of a new grade separated connection under Georgia Avenue to improve access to the Forest Glen Metro Station from neighborhoods and institutions located on the east side of Georgia Avenue. There is currently an underground walkway from the parking and bus area on the northwest quadrant of the intersection to the southwest quadrant. A new connection would be made to this passageway connecting the southwest quadrant to the northeast quadrant. A ramp connection and elevators bring the underground connection to grade on the northeast corner of the intersection.

Justification

This project is needed to improve the mobility and safety for all facility users within the project area by reducing existing conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles. Currently, transit users, pedestrians, and bicyclists cross MD 97 (Georgia Avenue) and Forest Glen Road to access the Metro Station. This project will eliminate the need for these at-grade pedestrian crossings and will also facilitate crossing of the road for community members who are not using Metro. Traffic volumes and speeds on MD 97 can be very high and pedestrians must cross over eight lanes of traffic. These crossings can be very intimidating, reducing community connectivity and use of the Forest Glen Metro Station. The project will help the County achieve its Vision Zero goals to reduce deaths and serious injuries on County roadways to zero by 2030.

Other

Site improvements and utilities funding has been adjusted to FY26 on the front end of construction because the utility relocations will need to come early on to allow for excavation.

Fiscal Note

Construction costs are based on conceptual plans and will be updated as design progresses.

Disclosures

A pedestrian impact analysis will be performed during design or is in progress.
