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.
