These subprojects include ADA improvements, bicycle lanes, separated bikeways, trail connections, sidewalk construction, signage, and more.

Justification

This project will enhance efforts to improve pedestrian and bicyclist mobility, safety, and access in the Takoma / Langley Park, Long Branch, and Piney Branch / University Avenue Bicycle and Pedestrian Priority Areas (BiPPA) and within one mile of Purple Line Stations. Efforts include the design and construction of cycle tracks, bicycle lanes, trail connections, and neighborhood greenways as well as pedestrian improvements including sidewalks and ADA-upgrades. These improvements will help improve connectivity for people walking and biking to important community amenities such as the Long Branch Community Center, schools, retail, and commercial centers. These efforts will also meet master plan non-auto-driver mode share (NADMS) goals. The project will help the County achieve its Vision Zero goals to reduce deaths and serious injuries on County roadways to zero.
