Description

This pedestrian access improvement program provides sidewalks on County-owned roads and some State-maintained roadways. Some funds from this project will go to support the Renew Montgomery program. The Department of Transportation maintains an official list of all outstanding sidewalk requests. Future projects are evaluated and selected from this list, which is continually updated with new requests. In addition, projects identified by the Citizens' Advisory Boards are placed on the list. One aspect of this project will focus on improving pedestrian walkability by creating a safer walking environment, utilizing selected engineering technologies, and ensuring Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) compliance.

Projects originate from requests by residents, civic associations, and public agencies. Requests are evaluated and scheduled using sidewalk prioritization procedures. The project will help the County achieve its Vision Zero goals to reduce deaths and serious injuries on County Roadways to zero by 2030.
DOT is reviewing the GIS-based prioritization tool which will help evaluate the sidewalk requests based on safety, trip generators, and equity data.
