Description

This project provides a new eight-foot wide hard surface public sidewalk and recreational trail, approximately one mile in length, on the east side of Frederick Road (MD 355) in Clarksburg. The trail provides accessible pedestrian connections from an existing sidewalk at Snowden Farm Parkway to the Little Bennett Regional Park Day Use Area. The trail will extend the Clarksburg Greenway hard surface trail and the MD 355 hiker-biker trail north towards Hyattstown; provide pedestrian access from the Clarksburg Town Center to the Little Bennett Regional Park Campground, future day use area, and natural surface trail system; and provide bikeway and trail connections via Comus Road to a future Class III bikeway on Shiloh Church Road and to a future natural surface trail connection through the Ten Mile Creek Legacy Open Space to Black Hill Regional Park, promoting pedestrian connectivity and expanded recreational opportunities in upper Montgomery County. The plan includes the following elements: asphalt trail, approximately 750 linear feet of twelve-foot wide elevated boardwalk with concrete decking, retaining walls, pedestrian crossing of MD 355 at Comus Road, signage, tributary stabilization, stormwater management, and reforestation planting.
