Description

This project provides for planning and preliminary engineering of access improvements to the White Flint Metro Station. Access is currently limited to the southern end of the platform. Metro has conducted a feasibility study of providing additional access at the northern end of the platform, including potential pedestrian underpass connections of MD 355 (Rockville Pike). Construction of northern access to the station will reduce walk times to the Metro Platform. If included, the pedestrian underpasses will reduce conflicts with motor vehicle traffic at the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and MD 355.

Justification

This project is needed to improve the mobility, and safety for all facility users within the project area by reducing walking distances and times to the Metro station platforms. The project may also reduce existing conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles. Currently, transit users, pedestrians, and bicyclists cross MD 355 Rockville Pike) and Old Georgetown Road to access the Metro Station. If the underpasses are included, this project reduces the need for at-grade pedestrian crossings. Traffic volumes and speeds on MD 355 can be high and pedestrians must cross over seven lanes of traffic.

Fiscal Note

Total cost is expected to be approximately $34.8 million. The remaining funds will be solicited from WMATA. Local share adjusted due to affordability.

Disclosures

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