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. Associated sidewalk improvements would also be made to Forest Glen Road to complete the walking connection on the north side of the road to Holy Cross Hospital.

Estimated Schedule

Design will begin in FY23 and construction will begin in FY25. The schedule is adjusted due to fiscal capacity. The expectation is that the cost will be much higher based on recent experience with similar projects. In the meantime, other options will be explored with the State.

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.
