Description

The Capital Crescent Trail (CCT) is the most popular shared-use trail in Montgomery County, connecting Washington, D.C. with Silver Spring. In Bethesda, the CCT crosses Little Falls Parkway, a four lane, Park-owned road. The crossing has been the site of numerous incidents, including a bicyclist fatality in 2016. In 2017, M-NCPPC implemented an interim road diet to reduce vehicle speeds, increasing safety at the crossing. This project is to design and construct permanent safety improvements for the trail crossing. Staff facility plan recommendation was presented to Planning Board in June 2018, which subsequently approved diversion of the Trail to the intersection of Little Falls Parkway and Arlington Road to cross with the traffic signal, and re-open all four lanes of Little Falls Parkway to vehicle traffic.
