Description

This project funds the design and construction of pedestrian and bicycle improvements to Flash stations along the US 29 corridor. First and last mile connections to Flash BRT stations along US 29 were identified as part of the US 29 Mobility and Reliability Study effort. These sub projects would expand and improve the existing pedestrian and bicycle network by filling gaps and upgrading existing facilities. Potential projects could include new and upgraded crosswalks and pedestrian signals, new and upgraded curb ramps, new and upgraded sidewalks, and new and upgraded bicycle facilities. Projects that improve ADA access will be prioritized. Added State Aid will support improvements north of Randolph Road.

Justification

These projects will complement the initial investment the county and federal government made in the US 29 Flash service by expanding and improving access for pedestrians and cyclists to the stations. The projects will also improve pedestrian and bicyclist mobility and safety. Projects will help the County achieve its Vision Zero goals to reduce deaths and serious injuries on County roadways. Improving access to US 29 Flash supports master plan efforts to increase the number of persons traveling by bike, on foot, and via transit. This is in line with the County's Climate Action Plan goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The project supports the following countywide vision goals: Safe Neighborhoods, Easier Commutes, and a Growing Economy. Approved land use plans in the corridor recommend the implementation of transit lanes and new pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure along with US 29 Flash. The project is consistent with the Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan and County Bicycle Master Plan.

Fiscal Note

Construction cost estimates are based on facility planning conceptual cost estimates completed in FY21 of $95 million. Construction costs will be updated as design progresses. State Aid reflects state grants for capital projects in Montgomery County programmed during the 2022 State General Assembly Session. It is intended to address first- and last-mile access for stations north of Randolph Road.

Disclosures

A pedestrian impact analysis will be performed during design or is in progress. The County Executive asserts that this project conforms to the requirement of relevant local plans, as required by the Maryland Economic Growth, Resource Protection and Planning Act.
